You never know what you will find

23 Jan

Not only do I hunt for Geocaches I hide them.  The following is a couple of log messages I received a while back.  I thought you might enjoy reading  the funny things you may run ( cough, cough ) into while on the trail.  😉

Here is a pic of the location.  I am standing beside it looking out.

What we do for a cache.  Until next time, happy caching!

Check out the tiny cloud almost above the three people walking across the street.  So the cartoons are true after all.
A wonderful Friday to all and to all a good weekend.

A Winter’s Hike

9 Feb

We thought we would shake it up a little and hike a different trail.  We saw very interesting tracks along the way.  For two  mile we saw evidence of many animals one of which was mountain lion….

I know it is hard to see.  Maybe if you squint your eyes it would help.  The sun was setting fast and we were not interested in staying for dinner.

Advise from the Woodland

Find your path

Start from the ground up

Stretch your limbs

Branch out

Root for others

Make room for new growth

Recycle, recycle, recycle

The beauty of a woodland area is inspiring.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

22 Jan

When one thinks of a tree, one rarely thinks simple….

With its complex system of sustaining life, it is indeed not simple at all.

However, seen through my grand-children’s eyes this tree brings  a simple gift of fun and cool relief  from the harsh sun above.


An amazing tree can also offer some simple sage advice

Advice From a Tree

Stand Tall and Proud

Sink your roots into the Earth

Be content with your natural beauty

Go out on a limb

Drink plenty of water

Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!

A Welcome Visit

16 Jan

Yesterday I received a visitor at work.  She was just hanging out on the truck that was parked beside my car.  I was about 10 feet from her and at first she pretended like I was not there.

I began to talk to her.  I asked her if I could take her picture….she agreed to one frontal shot but nothing more.  As soon as I put away my camera I gave her some left over fries out of the back seat of my car.

Such a pretty girl, would you agree?  I love her eyes and how she gave a little pose.

When I arrived home I found this in the front yard.

I finally found my way into the house and sat down to warmed by the fire.  I had a pretty great day over all.

all photos taken with the cannon s5is.  no enhancements no croping…although it could have used some i think.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

I love the way the sun glitters across the snow.

Not a sound was in the air.  No wind was blowing.

Just a beautiful peaceful feeling.

I was given a challenge

7 Jan

My e-mail opened up an opportunity for me this morning.  It ask if I would introduce just one person or better yet one family to the fun, NO, the art of Geo Caching.  Each New Year, millions of people around the world resolve to change something in their lives. Common resolutions include: getting in shape, stressing less, traveling more, and spending more time with family. It said I could put someone on the road to accomplishing all these things simply by introducing them to geo caching.  Well that is what I want to do.

Geo Caching is an awesome game that is played around the world and it is free.  It takes you to places that you would have never found on your own. In a nut shell this site explains it so well.  A treasure hunt like no other and did I mention it is free.  Mr. M and Stella hated it at first, but as soon as we started getting into harder hunts and the larger caches they perked up and took notice what is even better, it is free.

You need a GPS that you can enter the co-ordinance into, a computer to register your team name at no cost and get the locations of the hidden caches.  You will also need an open mind that can think both in and out of the box.  I guarantee, you have a cache within a mile or two of you just waiting to be found.  This treasure hunt is all over the world.  No mater where you are or who you are, you can find one close at hand.  If you have an iPhone, you can download an app that is like an all in one for a small price of about 9.99.  It is what I use 90% of the time.

Try something new this New Year.  Get out there and grab some of the fun and some great photos.  Most of the pictures on this blog are from geo chacing.  Life is too short not to share it with the ones you love.  If you love to get outside and have a knack for finding things, if you want to relieve stress or want to spend time with your family you must give it a go.

Please, please try it. If you try it let me know if you liked it.  It all starts with the click of a mouse
