25 March 2012 9,000 Geocache Finds
It is strange to think we have been geocaching for so many years. It seemed like a fun activity, but I wasn't sure how long it or our interest would last. It certainly has staying power. I was going to be traveling, and we wanted to hit another milestone together so we drove to northwest Pennsylvania to Erie Bluffs State Park. For a time, cachers would place caches and call this area Erie Bluffs State Park. I would chuckle at the prospect of this area being a state park. Then about a year ago I found out this really was planned as a state park. At the moment, the "park" is a sign at the entrance, a gravel parking area, and a couple of really muddy trails. Today we found lots of wildflowers, a handful of birds, and a pleasant walk (and some ticks). Normally there is a great view of Lake Erie, but the haze really closed in visibility. We had fun and passed another milestone in the world of Geocaching.
