Lake Isabella

My first cache of my trip to Ohio was at Lake Isabella, another Hamilton County Park. This park is mainly for those that fish, but there are also some picnic shelters to rent out and some playthings for the kids. It's a small park next to the Little Miami River.... and you guessed it... it features a lake.

I had to buy a park pass for my Dad's truck when I got there, and while I was in the boathouse I also picked up some bug spray. That bug spray was the best buy I've made in a while... there were SWARMS of mosquitoes. I didn't get a single bite!

That first day I cached, was the worst day weather wise of my whole trip. It was extremely hot and humid and everything was damp from recent rains. Not to mention... I'm not used to tree cover interfering with my GPS, so I had to deal with that.

Some how I managed to tune out my Geosense and scramble up the hill to the left in this picture. I mean look at the picture - It's fairly obvious where the cache is. Doh!

It's in the Tree!

Anyway, It's good that I got a little off track... I got this sweet snail shot!

I struck out at the other two caches in this park. One appears to be missing and I gave up on the other one because on the way to it, I lost my GPS in some tall weeds for about 15 minutes.
