On Friday last week, I went on yet another Geocaching adventure with a couple of friends. We decided to go after a multi cache in a park nearby on a difficult trail. In order to find the end coordinates, we had to solve a problem over by a pretty little pond. Then, we drove a mile through the park to climb the trail. It was a steep climb, but totally worth it. When we got to the top, there were only some slight hills involved. After we reached one end of the trail and found the cache, we realized the other reason we wanted to climb this trail was where we started, so we had to go all the way back. Once we got back to where we started, we went just a bit past it and were rewarded with a fantastic view of the old quarry and could see up to over 20 miles away to Cleveland. I had to zoom in with my camera, but there it was! The views throughout the whole trail were beautiful! I also enjoyed seeing all the black squirrels running amok.
Nearby, there was a playground. We were trying to solve another puzzle, but our inner children decided they wanted to play, so we ended up goofing around on the swings and a few other things while we were there. Oh, they made a vine video. It was a must!
After that, we managed to grab a few more caches as well. At another cache, we found such an old cemetery, it was pre-civil war. One of the stones I remember being able to read was dated 1825. There were also several graves that had the same last name as one of my friends, so he took pictures to show his grandma.
At another point, we were in a river near a bridge built in 1881. I managed to get some great photos of it from down in the river. The water was so low, we could walk out on the rocks into the middle. We didn’t venture into the water at all, but my friends were able to skip some rocks. 🙂
We also made a stop at Squire’s Castle at dusk and nabbed a few pictures. It was kinda creepy, but the pictures came out cool! Aside from that, we stopped at another cemetery where it looked like a tree was going to eat one of us, a coffee shop, and a pine tree near the movie theater. 🙂
Well, that was our Friday adventure. I really hurt by the end of it, but it was totally worth it! We finished off the night with dinner at Steak ‘n Shake then vegged out at my place for a bit. For the rest of the weekend, I was set up at Geneva-on-the-Lake, but I’ll write about that in another post. So, with that, thanks for reading!
