Geocaching

We have an absolute love for geocaching.  We don’t get out as often as I would like to but when we do it is a ton of fun!  Geocaching is basically a high-tech treasure hunt that can be done with the whole family.  Learn more about geocaching by checking out my previous posts.

We went out last month and found eight caches in one day!  That was a new record for us.  It was the perfect day for caching, a bit overcast and not too hot for a hike.

We found some pretty cool caches too!  
This one was hidden in a hollowed out log.

The boys are the perfect age for hiking.  They are like little sponges and ask questions about everything on our hikes.  I love it because it brings me back to my days as a park interpreter when I got to share my love of nature with large groups of school children.

This is one of the most unique geocaches that I have found.  Yes, there is a cache there. ha ha

See?  You are supposed to “blow” into the tube and the cache would pop out of the top.

And we came across a bunch of friendly cows {and a deer} on our adventure.  Fun right?!?  If you haven’t tried geocaching yet I hope that I have inspired you to head out into the great outdoors and give it a go.  Check out www.geocaching.com to get started.
