Geocache: Take 2

So, we went out for another geocache adventure on Monday. After realizing that the cache we had chosen was actually placed in someone's front yard and deciding that we didn't want to go digging through the snow with people watching from their front window, we decided to do a reprise of our first cache and see if we could actually find it this time. The coordinates were still in the GPS so off we went up the mountain again. The snow had melted quite a bit since the last time we were up there, so the trip was significantly faster and once we reached the designated spot, the cache was practically in plain sight. How could we have missed it? Oh yeah, it was covered in snow. Turns out snow is better camo than camo is.

So we found the cache, wrote in the log, replaced a keychain with a whistle, and felt extremely more satisfied than we did after finding the rusted out steel drum. Yay for geocaching during the day!

Filling out the log.

The keychain we took from the cache.

So "in plain sight" may have been a bit of an exaggeration. Can you find it?

How bout now?

Afterwards, we went for some ice cream on center street and walked to another cache, which wasn't so much a cache as a "Hey, find this cool tree using your gps." It's behind the courthouse and is apparently some sort of crazy crossbreed tree made from the parts of three different trees. Pretty cool looking huh?

That is a cool tree - have you seen the monkey tree on the Oregon Coast yet? That is really cool too!

Glad you found it this time. Best line: "Turns out snow is better camo than camo is."
