With the new section of highway 97 done, a few new WALC (walking around Lake Country) trails have emerged. And what does any good geocacher do…..going hiking to place new caches of course 🙂
The trail was a pretty easy 3km hike. Liams favorite part……going through the tunnel under the highway. We walked on a variety of nice man made trails, dirt bike/quad trails, and some deer trails. Looking at the map I thought this hike was going to be pretty long, but we managed, and Liam did awesome! However with placing 11 caches along the trail it did take use just over two and a half hours. The end of the hike was getting a little hurried as it was getting dusk very quickly. We made it back to the car close to 4:30….just in time, any longer and we would have had to break out the flashlights.
A much needed hot drink was needed after this hike. With dusk, came very cool temperatures, plus I had a leaky hydration pack, resulting in a wet back 😦 A trip to Tim Hortons warmed us up, Liam was very excited for a hot chocolate to finish off our family hike.
Hopefully the snow holds off for a little longer so we can hike…..and of course hide more caches on some more of the trails above the Raptor trail.
