Geocaching, Picnics, and Trail Hiking

This past weekend we were once again blessed with sunshine and beautiful blue skies one of the two days. So, of course, I knew we needed to plan something outside for fun and exercise. We thought it would be a perfect day to log some miles on two different trails to add to the 52 Hike Challenge I signed up for and also find some geocaches.

We decided to head south to two “new to us” trails. The first was short and offered geocaches only reachable by kayak, which we will be finding when the water warms up a bit. In the meantime we did head out across the bridge and check out the surroundings.

We saw a lot of wildlife in this small area enjoying the sunshine as much as we were. IMG_3872

After exploring for awhile, we stopped to have a picnic before heading to our main trail of the day.

Upon arriving at the Wiouwash Trail we were happy to see a small parking area with restrooms provided. This area will fit three-four cars maximum. IMG_3887

We headed out on a mission to find some geocaches and had no issues what so ever doing so. We are now at #615 found!!!!

I was so happy to see green leaves on the trees starting to make their appearance. Summer is coming…….. IMG_3889

We even had our own cheering crowd for a distance. Apparently, they must have recently had a race of some sort on this same trail and someone took paper cores and painted/decorated them and placed them along the trail for a short distance giving a high five with a fork arm attached. They were quite comical .

It ended up being a great day. Almost 6 miles covered and two new trails discovered. One which we will return to with kayaks and one to finish hiking and searching out more geocaches in the near future.
