Hiking in the Springtime

I never get tired of the lush greenness of the woods in our area. We spent some time hiking and geocaching while we were camping. The sun finally did come out and it turned out to be a beautiful day. The sunlight filtering through the trees on the new spring growth was just breathtaking.
There are quite a few caches hidden around Priest Lake. We discovered one in this burned-out tree on a hillside along the hiking trail.
The woods were full of little streams, created by spring run-off, meandering toward the creek...
...which in turn, feeds the lake.
Caches we found this weekend:
Geocaching is a great way to get off the "beaten path" and discover some of the best-kept secret places in our area. It was a fun weekend.
