Geocaching Part 4

Read about parts 1 here, 2 here, and 3 here.

Our last quest is only about a quarter of a mile from our home.  This quest took us down a powerline trail to the pole with our coordinates.

Lauren read the coordinates off of the metal band so her Dad could enter them in the GPS device.

The coordinates led us away from the powerline and the very rough terrain. 

Erosion had taken its toll on this part of the path and we were very glad we did not have to climb down these drop offs.  Of course, the boys had to try them out.

 

From here we followed the trail which led us next to the bayou.  We were getting cold but were very thankful for the coldness because it kept the mosquitoes away.  The trail was very pretty with views of the bayou as we walked.

The trail was a bit sloppy in places but dry for the most part.

The coordinates led us to this cache which Lauren found all by herself, and she was very excited.

We have had over 12 inches of rain in the last month and this geocache obviously suffered from the water-everything was wet inside. That did not dampen our spirits.  We were excited just to find it.  Paul signed us in as well as he could, the kids put everything back and hid the cache for the next quester.

We headed back out on the trail. 

We had so much fun on our day of geocaching adventures.  It is a fun way to get exercise and spend time with family and friends.  We are looking forward to the next chance we get to go questing!   Hopefully my hubby will be well and able to go with us.
