We did some geocaching today, something Shauna and I used to do frequently.  Just in case you didn’t know geocaching involves downloading the cordinates of a hidden container of some sort to your GPS device and searching around until you find it.  The containers usually have a log book and little trinkets that fellow geocachers leave behind.    There are all sorts of geocaches, but we enjoy the ones that take us out to the forest for some exploring.

Today we tried a cache in Beech Hollow and one near Murry Bluff.  The Beech Hollow cache is an area where I’ve ridden some and was located near a scenic overlook of Williams Hill.  After over an hour of searching the bluffs we gave up.

A view of Tom Dick Hill road, it looks almost vertical, hard to believe I've climbed it on a bike.

Murry bluff rewarded us with better luck, we found the cache and Shauna traded trinkets. We walked almost 4 miles in total and covered some really rough terrain searching the bluffs, we saw some interesting things and took a few pictures. It was alot of fun.
