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. †
