Turning those Frowns Upside Down #geocaching

There are more than a few caches close to home that I've come up empty handed on. I've let them sit around too long...


Today I decided to tackle two caches on the Juan Bautista de Anza National Trail. I dashed out of the house a little after 4pm and hoped they wouldn't take me too long to find. It's definitely getting darker earlier. The sun set at 5:42 tonight! (Random fact: Arizona does not observe daylight savings.... Another random fact:My birthday is on the shortest day of the year! Oh, just one more.... the world is going to end on my birthday. I'm going to throw one heck of a party in 2012. You are all invited.)

Both of the caches I went after were placed by the same cache owner, and this container seems to be one of his favorites. His kids must eat a lot of Mini M&ms.

I DNF this cache almost a year ago.

This one I DNFed a year and a half ago!

Anyway, I don't know how I missed them the first time. I'm going to bet the yellow wasn't showing through when I looked last year ;-)

While most of you may be slowing down your caching because if the cold and the snow(except for you hardcore cachers), my geocaching season is officially in full swing! Hello Fall and Winter in the Southwest! I no longer fear melting in the desert.

With nicer weather comes more caching and more hikes. And more hikes mean more pictures! By the way, I use the word "hike" very loosely. On my little "hike" today I grabbed some pictures.... Which I would now like to share with you.

Buffelgrass. Yes, it is an invasive weed - but hey, I can make anything look beautiful!

That is all.
