The sun was shining bright and early this morning, making it a great day for a hike/caching adventure. We wanted to go after a FTF (first to find), that was along a trail that Jason has already found a couple of caches on his own. He said it was a nice area and it would be fun for us to all go check it out. Off we went.
The trail is part of the old highway, that now is becoming overgrown with tress and moss. It was a beautiful easy walk, slightly downhill. Liam had fun running ahead and looking at all the tress and rocks. We even had to stop so he could climb on a big rock.
Apparently I have eagle eyes and found a cache along the trail (that is part of a series) that hasn’t even been published yet. I guess my geo-sense is getting pretty good. However while looking for another unpublished cache (#5 in the series hasn’t been published, but 6 has) I thought maybe I had found it, but no luck this time.
Poor little man had the painful experience of learning first hand (no pun intended) what a cactus felt like, when he got a plant stuck on his hand. Later when Jason was giving him a piggy back, Jason felt something poky on Liams shoe, and low and behold there was another small cactus.
Liam and I had some discussions about idiots that leave their garbage on the trails. He kept asking me why, and I didn’t have a good answer other then they were not very good people. I told him it wasn’t very good of all the people to leave their garbage on the ground when there was a garbage can at the start of the trail. On our way back to the car we did pick up all the empty bottles/cans we came across.
On one of our hiking adventure in the past we found a birds nest on the ground, today we say 2 birds nests in trees. One was up high, but had a bird in it, and the other was only about one and a half feet off the ground.
We really do live in a Beautiful British Columbia, here is a few more pictures from our walk.
After walking about 3 kilometer Liam was tired and very happy to get back to the car.
