Share Your Greatest Caching View

Recommended Posts

Out there, I am sure there are some caches enjoying views that are to die for.

 

Why not share your best of the best here.

 

My favorite was taken at "The Paramount Peak" cache in the Snowy Mountains of NSW Australia. Hope you like it.

Here's one I took on vacation in Sedona earlier this year, in Crescent Moon Ranch State Park. We were looking for a micro cache, and honestly, when we got there, the view was so amazing that I had a hard time concentrating on finding the cache. Even if I'd logged a DNF on the cache I'd have gone away happy!

I've seen so many great spots because of geocaching, unfortunately, I don't always have my camera with me :ph34r: . One of my favorite pictures is the one I used for a virtual along the Monterey Penninsula.

Not sure its close to my greatest, but one of the few I have since I only got my digital camera a a few months ago. Its from the Governor Mtn/Cupsaw Cache near Ringwood NJ.

A great cache near Moab Utah. I believe the mountain in the far distance is Mt. Peale. There is a cache there near the summit(GC18B7) that we hope to do next time in the area as well as many caches in between. Interestinlgy, from a geocaching point of view, another mt. near Mt. Peale is Mt. Waas. Seems like that one begs for a cache if there's not already one there.

How does one put a photo on here?

Can you drag and drop or do you have to put the url in? I have no url for a photo that comes out of my dig pics file.

I know how to put in a pic in a log, but the same method doesn't work here.

 

Also how do you set up a hyperlink on here? I tried to put one in per my favorites, but it did not go.

use the img button, which will ask for the url to the pic.

If its uploaded to a cache page just like to to, if not upload to cache page or your profile so you have someplace to link to. (you can find the url by clicking the picture to enlarge and coping the address, or just right click and select properties)

 

/e add picture to be on topic

Since one of our favorite caches "Wait Until Dark" requires that you do it at night, the view was of a city in lights. Then, we looked up and saw this:

This view is of SF, the city by the bay, taken at "Island 2: Treasure Island"

Wow. What kind of camera are you using that has a 4-blade aperture?

 

Great pics, everyone.

 

CacheCreatures, what are we looking at there?

Criminal,

From top to bottom:

 

1. Big Quilcene trail. Notice how much better the photo quality is in this photo as compared to the others. I used my new canon S30 3.2 megpixal for this one, the rest were my old 1.2 sony mavica.

2. Mt. Persis View cache. It was unbelievably cold and windy that day. Moun10bike has a couple mpegs somewhere on his site of that day. This is in the Cascades

3. This is Cache landing at Tulls Canyon in the Olympics. The glare on the lens is apparent. I hope to make CarleenP hike up here next summer when she visits.

4. This one is from the Tubal Cain trail near the mines. The trail is attached to the Tulls canyon trail.

5. This one is Gothic Basin in the Cascades. I bagged #100 this day.

6. This one is on the beach on Fox Island near my home. The huge boulder in the background has (or had) a benchmark on it.

I love these kinds of topics.

Both photos were taken pretty much right at the cache location.

This is not far from my house (somewhere there in the distance tucked in the trees). I walked to this cache Cache For A Sunny Day from my house. The cache is just a little ways up the trail from this beach.

Oh boy, what impressive pictures!

 

We should create a big-size picture calendar out of them to hang on the wall in the living room... ;-)

 

Here are two of mine, both in Daniel Boone National Forest, Red River Gorge/Clifty Wilderness area in Kentucky.

 

Waterfall along Swift Camp Creek Trail:

It's nothing special, it's just a lost lake in the middle of the woods in Northern Michigan. But visiting this site made me realize that geocaching gives me the ability to visit places I've never even heard about. This is what made me stay in geocaching.

These aren't mine, but they come from the logs of my The Great Falls of the Passaic cache. Actually, its not the photos that are so impressive; rather its the place they were taken. In the middle of Paterson, NJ. Paterson is an industrial city, not known for its beauty (to put it politely). The falls though are a different story. They are the second largest, by volume, next to Niagra Falls in the east.

WaldenRun, all your photos are great but the "Day's Final Light" from the Cracked tree treasure is absolutely awesome!!!

 

When I have more time I'm going to look over and enjoy your gallery of photos.

Well, compared to all the cool pics in this thread, mine is pretty lame, but I'll post it because it's interesting. It's near my Leap Year Cache that is due to go live on the 29th of this month. It's a bridge in the middle of Cheney Lake, surrounded by ice.......I lovingly call it "Bridge Out"
