It's HOT

It was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit today, but did I let that stop me? No way. I was in the mood for some caching!

In this heat, "Park and Grabs" are really the only option. You'd have to be crazy to go hiking in the middle of the desert... in the middle of the summer... in the middle of the day!

I started my day off with a P&G in a Domino's parking lot and then moved on to the grocery store. There I found two caches where only one should have been.


The description said something about the cache being muggled previously. So, I'm guessing either someone put it back or found it where it wasn't supposed to be. I picked one log and signed it. Hope it was the right one!

After heading into the grocery store for some batteries, I headed further up the road for more geocaching fun!

I about melted walking two-tenths of mile to this one. It was somewhere on this sign. 3 guess and the first two don't count. Hint: It was magnetic. And I realize I cut the "E" off. Oops.


Next, it was down the path for another one. I'd say another four-tenths of a mile. I could feel the hot hot sun beating down on me as I walked and searched.... I was looking the wrong direction for this one at first, but found it pretty quickly as soon as I turned around.


While walking back to my car I saw about 5 baby frogs hopping around...


They were so cute, about the size of my thumbnail. You really only see frogs here during monsoon season... but I still don't understand how they live here! That ground had to be hotttt.

I was getting tired, but wanted to grab one more cache... I went for a virtual at the park! Not a very fun one... but it counted ;-)



I'm four caches away from the big 4-0-0!

  1. The frog is HOPPING cuz it's too hot to just sit there!

    Go! Erika! 400!

  2. He's probably fry on the pavement if he stopped...poor thing :P

  3. Good luck on reaching 400!

  4. So, I'm not the only one who thought that cute little frog is hopping so well because if he doesn't his feet are gonna get fried!!!

    Great photos!
    Have you got a plan for number 400??

  5. Nice shot of that frog - and congrats - look forward to hearing about what you pick for #400.
