The caches we found varied in size, but for the most part were your typical hides... except the ones that eluded us of course. I usually bring my ipod with me with cache descriptions for reference if needed, but I didn't have it with me this time around. We looked for one cache twice - If have known the difficulty was a 4.5 I either would have looked harder or given up sooner ;-) We all know that in the end it's not the caches that matter but where the caching takes us, our experiences... the whole "getting outside" part of it that matters. One of the first few caches pointed out this crested saguaro.
I saw and learned the name of this new plant, a Fairy Duster.
But one of the highlights of the caching trip was defintly the dam.
One minute we are, driving in a neighborhood. The next we're standing in a small canyon and see a dam! Even though the cache was called "Just Another Dam Cache" I wasn't expecting it. The GPS was indicating that we needed to be on the other side....
So we made out way through...
Bonk! I hit my head.
We looked around but our GPS units were pointing straight at the rock walls of the canyon. I was poking around looking in the usual spots and before I knew it, Ken was gone and had made the find!
Only 61 more caches to 1000 finds!!
