I Found It!

Ellie and I had decided on the rv-dreams chat last night that we were going to find the geocache that is in Tucson Mountain Park today. She had to go into town first thing to do some errands so I did a shorter version of my usual walk this morning.

Shortly after 10:00 a.m. we headed out into the desert and with the assistance of Ellie's trusty GPS, I located the geocache. This is to go on record that today is the day I found my first geocache! Ellie had said it was in some rocks though but I spotted the rocks and after tapping them with my walking stick to be sure that any snakes that might be there had moved on, started moving them the rocks and found the ammo box. Glad I brought my gardening gloves! There were all kinds of neat things in it. Ellie took the red mardi gras beads. We walked almost 4 miles again and were gone 1 hour and 18 minutes so it was a good hike.

While we were gone Gordon went to the Desert Museum and finally got his photo of a woodpecker sticking his head out of a saguaro.

After lunch I did a quick vacuum job. Wasn't much in the mood for cleaning but then I never am!

This afternoon was spent reading both inside and outside in the 80F (27C) beautiful sunny day and doing internet jigsaw puzzles at .

And here are some photos that I borrowed of the snow in Ottawa.

The one on the left is my sister's house and on the right, my niece walking their dog, Jasper. There's a lot of white in these photos!

This is one I borrowed off Facebook from someone I used to work with - again Ottawa area

  1. I caught your post on geocaching in Arizona. That's crazy. We still have 18 inches of snow on the ground here in Minnesota! Most of our geocaches are still buried. It's really cut into our geocaching.

    Love the photos - just look at those cacti! Never been to Arizona, but it looks like you two are having a great time.

    Cache on!
