31 March 2012 Quiet Saturday Since I was into PA early and Ali would be driving in the morning, I got the 'chore' of walking out to one of our caches which was in need of maintenance. Ali had hidden it last summer in the frenzy for GeoWoodstock. The location was near one of our early higher terrain finds and a still favorite cache. The cache we found was archived long ago so we wanted a hide near that spot for GWS visitors who wanted another tough nearby hide. She had the dogs so climbing a rock formation with an ammo can wasn't going to work. It was low in a rock formation and had gotten wet. I hadn't been to the area of the hide before so I got to hunt for our own cache. Once I found it, I decided to move it up a bit. ;-) These are really nice gamelands. Depending on the trail the variety here includes everything from vernal pools teaming with salamanders to wildflowers to wild blueberries to large rock formations. The large rock formations are surrounded by really dense mountain laurel so the hike is challenging. The pleasant stream below is in the early part of the hike.
