21 June 2013 Last Day

With just two Legacy of Conservation caches to find, we planned to make this day as short as possible so we could begin our journey home. Our first find was George1's Three Falls cache which was included as part of the Legacy of Conservation GeoTrail. Like so many of George's hides, the falls were an awesome location.

There's a huge shelf below the falls visible in this image.

While in the area, we grabbed a seldom-visited multi with a scenic final location.

Is it me or shouldn't we be afraid when extractive fossil fuel technology requires up to 4 million gallons of water each day for each one of these? We probably won't need to worry about driving when we have no fresh water left to drink. It makes me shudder to think I recently heard a professor at a respected university who staunchly believes one of modern government's biggest mistakes was allowing people to believe they have a right to clean drinking water. He believes water should be sold to the highest bidder to do as they please.

By the time we reached Survivor's Rock, I was out of drive to take more images. We grabbed one more find of a friends' cache at a location with some happy memories before we began our somber journey west.
