Mt. Lemmon Geocaching

I've been geocaching up on Mt. Lemmon before, but there were still quite a few left up there for me to get. It was a beautiful day on Monday! Down in Tucson it was in the 70's and in Summerhaven (the town on top of Mt. Lemmon) it was in the 60's - Perfect caching weather!

In all, I ended up with 13 finds! There were a couple of DNFs(did not find) and DNAs(did not attempt) along the way. Sometimes the cache looks good on paper, but when you get there it's just too hard to attempt, the energy levels are too low, or there are too many muggles ... all good excuses for a DNA in my opinion!

Of course the highlights were the 3 Earth Caches!

Luckily I remembered the string, tape measure
and something heavy to complete these caches!

Yes, I'm wearing a fanny pack. Bahaha.

There were also a couple fun tradition caches as well...

A good day of caching and great scenery. I'm tempted to go back up there just to take photos. ;-)

  1. Never geocached there but we have been to Mt. Lemmon when Jake was about 20 months old. We love Tucson and can't wait to visit again.

  3. Hey, I wear a fanny pack! Don't laugh! I like to think of it as a "utility kit" or "survival pack" or something cool like that.

    Sounds like a fun day - thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds like a good time caching! We were in Phoenix a few years back. I think it was called South Mountain Park....there was puzzle cache up there we were able to find AND had the puzzle right to open the pad lock on the cache. One of our favorite caches.
