12 April 2008 Caching Tuscarawas County
A little farther south made a world of difference in the wildlflower watching. We found sping beauty and spice bush was in bloom. Later in the day, Ali spotted the first orchid leaves of the season.
Goat Haunt had a rare weekend off work when we were in town so he joined us for the fun. We started off in New Philadelphia and moved onto points outside the town including a nice hike at Zoar Woods. We finished the day on the tow path for the canal and a walk along the North Country Trail. Both areas had just recently flooded. Two of the three caches we hunted appeared to have been washed away in the flood. The height the water reached was amazing.
