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!

Christmas Eve Morning 2011

This is the same picture I posted on my word blog only I crop and tweaked it a little with the program PrintShop for this blog.  This program is the only one I own that will let me crop and auto correct.  One day, I vow to purchase and more importantly learn how to use Photo Shop.  If you have Photo Shop and would like to tweak it for me I would love to see how it could really be.   You can find the original at Life is a bowl of kibble.  My only request is to not use this photo as your own, however, Photo Shop enhancement credit can be all yours.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

Between:

the lines is a path to our home,

a haven where the fireplace is always warming and hot chocolate is always on.

Family, friends and neighbors are always welcomed

Between:

the navigational beacons is the road to work,

where everyday is an adventure in human nature.

Between:

the trees is a little peace of mind,

where neighbors are always helping neighbors.

Between:

You and the other side is a downed tree. 

An ominous sight when traveling deep in the forest to deliver mail.

Between:

the bottom branches and the ground are bowls in the snow,

where the deer and elk can rest and wait out the storm

you and me, I would not have it any other way.

A day of shopping and Geo Caching lead me to view a wonderful site.

Osha Trail in Cloudcroft New Mexico Fall 2011.  We were out on another Geo Cache and, of course, we found it about 2 miles in.  Nice walk and beautiful colors.

Last weekend My husband and I went Geo Caching

These are the pictures of that trip.  Note: These Pictures are not spoilers.  They are just sights we saw on the way to the cache

Steep hills and sharp drop offs

We were out in the middle of no where.  I found the cache at Heart Attack Canyon Trail.

I am ready for another cache run.

Silent Sundays – Geo Cache Adventure Finds

18 Sep

I live at the top of the southern end of the Sacramento Mountains.  To say water is hard to find here, would be an understatement.  So imagination my surprise when on a Cache run I discovered this beautiful find.  Bluff Springs,  Mayhill, NM

To a non resident of this wonderful mountain world, the little trickle of a stream must seem elfin.  But to me, it was like finding gold.  Then!

OOOOOHHHHH, what a treasure I have stumbled upon.  It left me wanting more.  I walk around the bend and I saw this!

A true treat for this misplaced ocean dweller. It took a few minutes to find the cache but we DID  find it under a log.  This picture is not a spoiler so don’t worry geo-cachers.  As we left Hubs grabbed a last minute shot.

Next week I will post another water find that to this date still excites me.

 

Yipee it is after Labor Day

I know it will be a while before the snow begins, but I could not help looking back at last winter.  I love this picture because it was so unexpected.  I throw mail with  my husband a couple of days a week.  One mid-morning we turned the corner just in time to see 4 wild horses.  Before I could grab my camera, two had escaped.
