The last few weeks have been incredibly insane especially since we thought things would slow down after Easter. That hasn't been the case. Last week the children and I decided to skip town and go where there are signs like this.
My Lutheran Stud was attending a Psalms conference at this place, YMCA of the Rockies. He had an extended afternoon break on the second day, so we drove to the mountains to meet up with him for the afternoon. I'm sure you can guess what we did. Yes!
Rebecca found the cache hidden in some rocks. It's pretty common to find caches hidden in the rocks.
We've seen many boxes like this as well. Our girls are becoming seasoned geocachers. They carry their backpacks filled with goodies to trade as well as pens and pencils since we often forget those things.
Thomas picked up this cool cache. We didn't realize it at the time, but this is called a Travel Bug. There are numbers on it where we can track where it has been and where it originated. How fun is that? This particular guy started it's travel in Vermont. We're hoping to go caching again soon and place it in a cool place.
This cache was a little tricky to get to since it was down a steep hill that drops off even further if you're not careful.
Our next cache was a interesting. It was hidden under someone's shed in a small neighborhood. Normally the caches are on a trail somewhere or in a more public area.
Our last cache before supper was here. Any guesses where it might be? Many caches also have clues. This clue was "8-4."
After running around all afternoon it was time for some BBQ. Smokin' Dave's is the place for BBQ in Estes. They have fall off the bone ribs and smokin' pulled pork. It was finger lickin' good!
