Photos from a Geocaching Adventure

My favorite photo of the day...it reminded me of looking through a stained glass window.

For those of you who may have been curious to know how my geocaching adventure went on 10-10-10, the day that Groundspeak was hoping to break the record for the number of caches in one day, there’s good news and bad news.

The bad news first: the cache I attempted could not be found and unfortunately, that means it did not count for the day’s total number of caches.  (Because I went online to www.geocaching.com and logged the cache as unsuccessful, the creator will check it out and either take it down or fix it for future geocachers.  This happens sometimes, but is not too common.)

The good news:  I had a lot of fun looking for the cache and was able to get some great photos along the way.

The cache wasn’t too far from my house, so my journey was on foot.  It was an absolutely beautiful, clear day.

Of course, any geoacaching adventure is subject to a hike through overgrown or difficult terrain.  Here, I am snagged by some thorny flora.

I’m pretty sure that this is where I should have found the geocache.  I’ll check back on the website in a few weeks and see if it’s been updated.  It would be nice to complete the cache now that I know where it should be!

Before giving up and heading home, I took a moment to look around.  As usual, the geocache had taken me to a beautiful and scenic destination.  Yup, this is New Jersey.
