So while wandering down a trail this afternoon with the dogs, I came upon a curious discovery. Midway thru our walk the dogs bolted thru the brush to get at a tree set back off the trail and obscured by vines and bushes. They started pawing at it and I figured it was a squirrel. But no.
On inspecting what they'd found, I discovered a hollow spot in the tree and in it a metal box. Opening it I found a camera, trinkets, a diary, and a note explaining that what was in my hands was a geocache.
Took the dogs pictures. Signed the journal. Put it back for the next wanderer.
