Dobbins Lookout

Just another awesome location Geonarcissa and I visited on our day of caching :-)

Dobbins lookout is located in South Mountain Park at an elevation of 2330ft. The view of Phoenix was amazing, as you can see.

Our reason for visiting this spot was the South Mountain Metamorphic Core Complex Earthcache.

After reading the description a couple times, we successfully completed the cache and made our way down the mountain.

We grabbed caches on our decent and took advantage of all the photo opportunities.

I'm up to 5 earthcaches now! My favorite one is still in Tennessee, you can read about it here. My hardest geocache involved crawling through a cave, I almost got stuck... twice.

And since I've really started liking ask question if I can...

If you're a geocacher...
What is your most memorable Earthcache?
Link to it if you've blogged it ;-)

If you're not a geocacher...
Have you ever been horseback riding?

  1. Looks like a lovely hike up to that view! Horseback Riding? oh yes!! I took lessons for a bit, English. But I've ridden Western as well.

  3. I've found 31 Earthcaches. Actually, 32, but there's one I haven't logged because Nik lost the information. We're hoping it will turn up when he moves in.

    I think my most memorable Earthcaches were the ones at Gettysburg, Devil's Den (GC14YRW) and Little Round Top (GC161PZ).

  9. I've only done one Earthcache:

    Alum Bay Earthcache

    but it was awesome fun

    We had to go down on a chairlift to the bottom of the cliffs, I enjoyed that a lot!

    I haven't blogged the cache as such, but you can see the chairlift on this blog post

    (I hope those links work :) )
