The pissed-off turtle with one evidentiary leech removed72 viewsThe consensus agreed that the turtle was pissed off at us. We knew that already, because it pissed ON Jenny.
Jenny points out an "on/off" switch76 viewsThere was no electricity around to power this fine Sears specimen. The new group camping shelter, possible site of a future Geocaching event, is seen in the background.
A whelk shell in the middle of nowhere75 viewsLong ago and far away, this was on the ocean floor, possibly not far away, even.
Group camping area75 viewsI was directed to take this picture because Jenny's SD card wasn't working properly in her camera. So I did.

I pose by the rusty trees while Jenny sings our national anthem76 views...and the hooooooooooome......ofda..........braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaave! Woo Hoo!
Jenny, with the tall, skinny trees89 viewsThis is looking southeast. The tall, skinny, rusty tree grove cuts a swath through the property.
Jenny's boss arrives unexpectedly94 viewsWe told turtle tales, discussed Geocaching, talked about a future event, dissed poachers, and generally enjoyed a respite in the hiking. We had several such respites.
