Favorite Photos Taken While Geocaching

Recommended Posts

I mentioned some of our caches are hidden on a bike path. Here's part of the path, the photo was taken last Fall. The magnetic nano is on one of the bolts holding the fence together.

Another neat photo while geocaching.  A reproduction of Thomas Jefferson's home in Charlotte, Virginia. Built in Connecticut. A full scale replica of Monticello. Truly amazing.  Cache is nearby.

Geocached today in 20 degree weather.  The cache was a painted test tube sticking out of a hole in a tree that looked like part of a branch. We actually had to message the CO for another hint. It was a difficult find and our hands were freezing. Nice walk though!

I was out early this morning returning GC6JMDK to its hiding place, having removed it in early December when fires were threatening the area. Luckily that threat didn't eventuate and after substantial rain over the weekend everything looks lush and green again. Here's a couple of photos from near GZ looking down on Mullet Creek and the main northern railway that follows along its western bank.

Absolutely beautiful photos! I'm glad you were able to place your cache back. I would love to kayak on that river!

A geocacher once said after a red fox crossed his path while geocaching but didn't have time to take a photo: "Still, it proves Geocaching is more than the hunt for caches and the exercise to get to them. It more often than not, shows us nature's beauty." 

 

 

So true! Here's our photo of two bald eagles sitting in a tree watching us geocache. My cell doesn't take great photos so it's a little blurry. We stayed away from that tree so not to scare them off. The amazing thing was, two crows flew onto a tree next to them and they took off! I didn't know eagles were frightened of crows. They were huge though. Probably ravens.

GC7V2QN, my daughter took the pictures but this was one of the most memorable caches I did in 2019. Once back on the ground the grandson was ready to make the climb.

Great topic! I will narrow it down the best I can. To start, living in the desert Southwest, I often come across abandoned thing; because I love to cache in the middle of nowhere.

Unnamed “Island” at high water. I named it Sundial Island. This was a very long muddy walk.

A Summit View I rather enjoyed. This was a virtual Cache that has since been archived.

Panajachel, Guatemala. This cache was near the docks and I caught it right at sunset. 475C5E7C-C691-4DA3-90D1-C0678624337C.jpeg.9a089beca0305e85f53d144949a1c25e.jpeg

This is an active Earthcache, so I cannot tell you the date. A cave dwelling on Illinois, used by inhabitants long ago. ABC459C3-DA02-4EE6-A9C8-3722EFEE3326.jpeg.a9ed668703fb42d0deb4de528aa1ce52.jpeg

Finally, a slot canyon in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. One hiked all the way up to get to the cache. To date one of my favorite hikes, even though I was thinking of 127hrs the entire time. 53587384-9716-49CD-8341-0D8998D0DC85.jpeg.8ad8825ca5cf6d67e772de1bbc802f81.jpeg

Okay. This hike today was really cool, I wanted to share here as well. This cache was at the edge of these cliffs.

THIS is what geocaching is all about IMHO, thanks for the cache link! I'm planning a long road trip that includes 18 between Enterprise and St. George, it's now evident I need to take a detour through Gunlock and add this cache to my list :)
