Kay and I have a new pastime these days….Geocaching in our new 2015 Subaru Crosstrek that we bought about a week or so ago. We donated our ol’ blue Subaru Forester to a local non-profit as it had 223,ooo+ miles on it, and we wanted a vehicle that could be towed behind the motorhome that we will be getting in the next few weeks if all of our stars fall into alignment. We needed a manual transmission in the Crosstrek, of which there were only two in Colorado, so we could tow it with the motorhome, a 2009 Newmar Bay Star. More on this saga later.
Anyway, Kay downloaded a geocaching app on her electronic smartphone machine and we have been hunting geocaches in the local area with pretty good success. Ain’t science wunerfull! This morning we went to the far side of the Colorado National Monument on another hunt. Mornings are the best time of day to go when the day isn’t blistering hot, or we don’t get caught up in the afternoon monsoons. Here is Kay on the hunt:
She is headed for the juniper that is supposed to hold the cache. As you can see she is recouperating nicely after receiving her new knee. She can both walk and look at her phone at the same time. Yo Kay, watch out for the snake!
Voila! The cache:
When you find the cache, the object in her left hand, you note that you were there and put it back for the next geocacher to find. Fun, fun, in the great outdoors!
