Gearing Up for Autumn Caching

Autumn is here, it's cooling off a bit, the leaves are starting to change color and it's time for us to head back into the woods to geocache.  We generally steer clear of the woods during the hot summer months since I don't much care for mosquitoes and ticks.  But once we're past Labor Day - watch out!





We picked a nice 3 mile walk and grabbed about 14 geocaches for the morning.  I was surprised when Louie volunteered to do the tree climbing on this one....



We enjoyed climbing around on this old bridge near the river....



And then taking a water break near a cache.....


You can't see it but there's a cache hidden up here under the rocks...


I did the crawl and retrieval on this one.  Do you see where my GPS is laying on the ground?  Stupid move.  Don't do that.  That's how you end up walking away and leaving your GPS behind.  Just saying....


My favorite cache of the day was this home made Stanley Cup cache, honoring the recent Stanley Cup win for the Chicago Black Hawks....


I'm not giving the cache number for this cache because I don't want to spoil the location for our area cachers.  However, this is an excellent example of a cacher putting forth the effort to come up with a nice cache and fill it with great swag.  It had all kinds of Blackhawk memorabilia in it like jacket pins, bags of confetti from the parade, vinyl window clings and stuff like that.  Just a fun cache to find.  We took a Black Hawks jacket pin for my son's girlfriend who is a huge Hawks fan and we left a dollar bill.  It was the perfect cache to end the morning with and then we had a nice hike back to the car. 

I'm looking forward to more caching in the woods.  Visit me over at Snug Harbor Bay too!
