I wanted to visit Moonville and find the caches during our February trip, but the daylight was too short and I still wasn't up to the trip. It was good that we waited. We were treated to butterflies and spring wildflowers on a day with perfect weather. The tunnel was a fun walk and we enjoyed all the caches. The Moonville Tunnel is an easy walk. The other end is clearly visible from the entry. The Moonville stones above the tunnel entrance are missing a few letters, the markings of an old town that no longer exists are clearly there. If you can look past the obscenities and racial trash, there are interesting bits of graffiti on the walls of the tunnels.

We were taking opportunity of a weekend in the Athens area to visit nearby Meigs County and do some caching. We were looking for caches, but were also treated to a great show of trilliums. It was a super, spring day.

Strouds Run was a highlight show of spring. There were wildflowers everywhere. The wilflowers combined with miles of high-terrain trail and many, many caches made this a wonderful way to start the weekend. We left dozens of unfound caches in the park despite hours of hiking.
I had to travel to Nashville on Monday so a visit to Pennsylvania was out. Since we had such a great time in Athens, Ohio in February, we decided to return for a second visit. We had stopped at Burr Oak State Park during the February trip for one quick find as the sun went down. We planned to stop on our way home, but the weather got bad. Today, we had time to stop and enjoy the park more fully. The terrain was perfect for us, and the wildflowers were a nice warm-up for the weekend.

Phineas spends too much time on the internet.

We made our way from Warren PA to New York for a visit to Akely Swamp. We don't get to visit this location very often, but it never fails to deliver some sort of fun wildlife sighting. This afternoon, we were able to spot multiple scaups swimming around the pond while also seeing a kingfisher and the usual multitude of red-wing blackbirds.
