Another Geocaching Australia Locationless cache GA1438 - Sunrise. I took this photo from 7 Mile Beach south of Shoalhaven Heads. I was walking to a Geocaching Australia traditional cache I'd hidden on Comerong Island, a return distance of 12 kilometres. The cache is now listed with Groundspeak as Comerong GC3Q5H9.

Allendale Lake Algonquin Bluffs: even on a gloomy, misty morning there is beauty to be found.

Brass Cap Cache: foul weather looked to be moving in from the west, but it never actually amounted to anything other than a dramatic backdrop.

Cox Hill - A Cache for Susan: a well placed red pine on one of the final pushes up Cox Hill.

I took this about a year ago with my iPhone doing MINER'S LAKE EARTH CACHE (GC1TR39) in Ely, MN. The sun had just come up over the hills on the shore, the snow was sparkling like diamonds.

The pristine snow and ice showed where a lone deer had crossed the lake. The little white spot bugs me, I guess I should figure out how to use a photo editor. (edit to fix link to cache)

On a normal day,the hang gliders would land a couple minutes later 1,600 feet below, next to the road between Tiger and Squak Mtns.

 

Stepping off.

But when just the right wind funnels up between Tiger and Squak...

On their way.

they can fly north along the Cascades till the sun goes down.

 

I just wonder if they have an informal agreement with SeaTac tower. I sort of doubt they carry Mode C transponders or radios for talking to ATC. Those specs, just a few of many that day, passed through KSEA Class B airspace if they got above 5,000 feet.

I may post a few more later as I go through some old files. Had a great time reliving finding (or placing) these caches as I looked at all my photos! Thanks for letting me re-live some great memories!

Heh.  Brings back recent memories.  As well as old memories, since the Maryland WRC challenge is up in that area too.  Nothing like letting 8-9 years go by between visits to an area to see what one remembers and what one doesn't.

 

Nice photos all.

Trying to find that d*** cache underneath the fall foliage was arguably the hardest part of completing the Maryland Counties Challenge...

On my jet-lag day in Seoul, I attended a geo-event at 2:30pm, then headed up the adjacent mountain for "a few caches".  I got carried away, and proceeded right to the top, stopped only by a fence around a villain fortress on the summit.  Found a fantastic multi, MISSION GEOCACHING, nearby, then got down the mountain on the double.  No time for any other caches (I tried a bit, but had to run), and made it down by headlamp.

 

A sunbolt came through, and I snapped this about halfway down:

(That's the new Lotte World Tower, 5th highest in the world at 123 stories.)

 

Sometimes you wish there were Platinum Favorite Points.

A View From Below brought us to the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma where John Lewis and other marchers faced a line of officers as they set out to walk from Montgomery - redefining courage and changing a nation.

We came to the area to see the bridge, to remember and rededicate ourselves, following the civil rights trail to Montgomery.   This cache was an important part of our visit.
