Virtual Caching

Recommended Posts

Whoops, my photo is from an earthcache. We didn't so the virt because we didn't have the time. :P

I spent yesterday afternoon hiking in the Wichita Mountains, taking advantage of what may be the last warm weather for a while. Revisited Calibrate and Third Highest Point in Sooner State last night at sunset, just after logging Bonanza!

 

On the way to Bonanza! -- rock scramble

A little fall color on the hike back out

One more -- could double up with the night photo thread, but figured I'd put it here. Shot of the 3-state corner monument at Coloklakan on a starry night, used my hiking stick as a monopod (I hollowed out the top and glued in a tripod thread for my camera) and used my headlamp to light up the monument.

The Virtual is actually a nautical item on display on the Port Huron, Michigan waterfront, but from the site of it, I caught the sun rising over Lake Huron. I had a pretty crappy camera though, this was like 2006.

After visiting earthcaches at the main attraction, we explored more Natural Bridges near Angels Camp in California. If it weren't for this virtual, I might not have known to go further. We scrambled over rocks, following a creek and a small path lined with poison oak. We had the place to ourselves, although we met numerous people coming down the trail as we were leaving. Another reason to come to this area early.

We might never have visited Clifton, Arizona, if not t had not been for Hoosegow. But then we would also have missed being invited to see the old Union Hall (from the 1983 strike) - the mural there and the owner's collection of paintings by a very talented African-American artist. Who would have thought to find this kind of collection in a mining town that has probably seen its better days.

Hiking to Lyons Ranch in the Redwods National Park, another place that I may not have visited except for this game and the way that virtuals have expanded my experience - a stunning walk across a high prairie ridge, blanketed with wildflowers, overlooking deep forested valleys, to the remains of the ranch.

The Peter Iredale wreck is an iconic fixture on the Oregon Coast.   It would have been on our list regardless.  But this virtual brought the wreck to the game we play.

The Solar System -Sol at the Grouse Ridge lookout tower has got to have one of the best outhouses in California- unless you were using it at 2:00 am and stumbling around. IMG_0612.thumb.JPG.6abea9a17fd4d81d622eda9006247d19.JPG

GC7B9MJ, the Figure Eight Pools in the Royal National Park south of Sydney, Australia. The logging requirement on this virtual is to post a photo of yourself in the pools, the trick is it's only accessible at low tide and with slight seas.
