Earthcache Record Photo #1134 viewsJenny holds the GPSr while RD and Don stand helplessly in front of the chigger bench.
Earthcache Record Photo #2143 viewsDon holds the camera crookedly while Jenny gives me rabbit ears and totally falls down on the function of providing GPS documentation.
Very large, old, moss-covered oak growing on top of the midden133 viewsAssuming that this shell mound was inactive when this tree started its long history here, that would mean that the civilization abandoned this area four or five hundred years ago. I think, perhaps, maybe.
Behind the chigger bench, there was a golden orb spider141 viewsShe was eating the web that Don destroyed.
RD and Don handle their units again128 views
Finding a Geocache129 viewsDon led Jenny astray with his GPSr while RD found the cache with his eyes.
Cosmo waits patiently while cache logs are signed129 views
Jenny finds a cute ringnecked snake146 viewsCrappy picture, I know, but the snake was moving fast and Jenny was hardly keeping up with it trying to get it to sit still for the camera.
Awaiting the boat ranger to go back to the parking lot151 viewsThat's Cosmo (as usual) RD, Jenny, and Don (or Dan, if you listen to his wife).
RD played with Cosmo when he wasn't playing with his phone142 views
Dead vulture147 viewsWe noted that although this buzzard was most obviously dead, none of his species were picking his bones clean. There were plenty of buzzard roosts around there, so our conclusion was that even among vultures, there is respect for the dead.
