With the dogs at camp in Ohio, it was a day for chores on the trails at our home. We grabbed a saw, clippers, gloves, and a camera ;) and spent a few hours getting the trails ready for spring. We also enjoyed the colors of the season.

It was a big annual day for us. We always anticipate traveling to Allegeny State Park for the big geocaching event. It is one of the few days we set aside for friends, hiking, and geocaches with few or no other activities. The crowd was big and enthusiastic despite the threat of rain. It was a very good day including time spent with friends, a day on the trail with our friend Chris, and lots of hiking and caches. The rain arrived after our first couple of finds and soon drove us indoors to Chris' cabin for a piece of pie while we waited for the downpour to let up. Eventually, we were back on the trail and even treated to a spot of blue in the sky.

Each spring we try to spend the day at the ASP Geobash geocaching event. Today we left early to enjoy a few caches and a few sites along the way.

We were out seeking a few caches in Lake County. The first cache took us near this old bridge. Many of these are disappearing to be replaced with preformed concrete units. This 1881 beauty was spared and rebuilt.

We don't visit Holden as often as we should. It is a beautiful location every season. This evening we stopped for a walk with the dogs after an afternoon of chores in the yard. The spring wildflowers are running their course, but there were still some to be seen on our walk. These bellworts were attractive. There was a large carpet on the ground.
