I've seen a lot of different decorated objects in my travels. Cleveland has guitars. Olean, New York has squirrels. Buffalo has bisons. Salisbury has pianos with one difference, these are real pianos. They made for a fun walk around downtown while finding a few caches.

I had pent-up caching demand. I was traveling from Columbia City back home to Ohio. My trip started on the holiday and was soon over. The trip had been a success, but I wanted to take a break. I got a brief break from the rain at a stop in Van Wert. I stopped at a favorite ice cream stand and made my way to a local park for a cache find. It started raining on my walk. I eventually ended up in Crawford County with a break in the rain. Ali had directed me to a park with a number of caches. It also had nice mowed paths, a peaceful pond, and a variety of wildflowers in bloom.

Fort Wayne is one of the most mosquito-ridden areas where I have cached. The blood sucking monsters are large in number and have insatiable thirsts. On the backside of Eagle Marsh, Fox Island seems to be the epicenter of the mosquito population. I didn't want to travel far to cache and be outdoors and I knew Eagle Marsh was under water. I decided to take my chances at Fox Island. The area away from the woods trails had some nice wildflowers.

Work would require me to travel on the holiday so our chance of holiday fun were limited. Ali suggested Roper Hollow for a walk today. It was a good choice. The trail got a bit muddy at times. We had to deal with illegal atv's on our walk. But , the trail was tremendous.

We planned to make another visit to the Quehanna Wild Area for hiking and caching. While we were still having breakfast, a doe strolled through our view behind the kitchen. She was browsing heavily on one type of plant and within 20 feet of our sport ute as we watched.
