This is one micro we grabbed. It was a film canister hidden in a Magnolia tree in the center of town.
The next one we got was behind a house/ business under a tree. I believe it was a bed-and-breakfast but I honestly can't remember... and I didn't take a picture!
When we got into the park we went after the next cache. It was a large ammo box, chained to the roots of the tree. Odd, but I guess it prevents someone from walking off with it!
The Crate of Diamonds State Park is is the world's only diamond-bearing site open to the public. Which means there is a big plowed field - that cost six bucks to enter.
Jasper. I had picked up a lot of Quartz and Calcite.
For the Earth Cache we had to snap a picture with our GPS while digging, and answer a question that required us to do some sign reading.
Disappointed we didn't find any diamonds, we got back on the road and headed for a geocache to brighten our spirits. We ended up at a cemetery - which may seem a bit ironic... but now that I geocache and often visit cemeteries, I've gotten quite used to the setting. It was a very peaceful place on a back road. Roy Cemetery was situated on top a a hill and was a rather cute little cemetery.
Here is the cache.
From here.... we took a $hitload of gravel roads back to the highway.
P.S. - GPS companies - please make gravel roads a different color or something so I can AVOID them!
