Geocaching

We had the most fantastic day Saturday! The weather was absolutely gorgeous. We packed a cooler, hooked up the GPS to my laptop in the SUV, and took off for a day of Geocaching. We headed up to Lake Pend Oreille... over around the east side of the lake and into Montana. It was an all-day trip and we hit 10 caches.

#1. Sunnyside Up. What a pretty area! We had a time deciding which was the "eagle tree" but we finally found the cache.

#2. Pack River Flats. What a beautiful view! Water level was awfully close to the cache, but it was still dry inside.

#3. Bridge Out? My favorite cache of the day! We saw a moose! We have lived here for 7 years... and this is the first time I've been close enough to a moose in the wild to get a picture of it.

#4. Fountain. What an interesting spot. We also wondered why the fountain was here... and enjoyed the view.

#5. Crossroads of Old and New. Had our picnic lunch here.

#6. Boo-Boo Cache. A very cool location near a historic Ranger Station.

#7. Big Eddy.

#8. Spring Creek.

#9. Ross Creek Giants. My second favorite cache of the day. In fact, it is right up there with the Bridge Out one. The cedar forest was like entering fairy land! The kids thought it was a great playground... and we expected to meet up with a hobbit just any minute!

#10. Thompson Pass.
