I needed to travel to Tennessee for a week of business, I arrived in Nashville early and was waiting for a staff member to arrive on a red-eye from Spokane. I decided to spend the time wisely ;) and hunt for a few caches. These whimsical airplane and cloud mosaics are on the way to the car rental area.
I was traveling the following week so it was time to spend a weekend near home. We decided to take one more trip to Stark County and Walborn Reservoir to search for a new series of caches. It was a chilly day so we bundled Phineas in his Fido Fleece and headed south. It was a good time as we found all the caches and enjoyed a blue sky and scenic sunset.

Ali and I split in Pennsylvania with her heading west and me heading north to Lockport. I used the drive to stop for a few cache finds and exercise. Picturesque Ellicottville is on the way and a perfect place to stop. I was able to look for a Amish GeoTrail cache while enjoying the stately church.
I always enjoy a visit to Clarion County. Today we headed for a walk in State Games Lands 330. The area had some very lonely caches. It was also quite scenic today for a mid-winter walk.

It was 13 degrees a mere seven days prior. I liked the change.

With little snow this winter, finding caches proved a bit challenging today. After walking the dogs at a local park we dropped them so we could make a Valentine's visit to the Mentor Malley's and a visit to Lake Metroparks' Chagrin River Park.

In the middle of a very mild winter 13 degrees can seem tremendously cold. We wanted to go caching but were concerned for the dogs so they stayed warm and cozy while we hit the trail. Our plan was to visit a bike and hike trail and maintain a brisk pace unless we were stopping for a cache. It must have worked. We survived and had fun.

It was going home day. I finished my work with a couple hours of daylight remaining. With over five hours to my first flight, it was time to enjoy a few more caches. Since I was in downtown Spokane the question of where to begin was easy. I started with a return visit to Spokane Falls. The falls are quite attractive and were flowing fast this afternoon. I was also happy to spot two bufflehead working the current and diving for food. Natatorium Park is long gone from the location of the next cache, but I enjoyed seeing a late 50's Studebaker Hawk and a 1964 Rambler. These are both old enough to have been parked at the old amusement park before it closed.
My last stop was a return to Palisades Park. My last visit here was with Ali on a warm Sunday afternoon. This evening I was near sunset when I headed out. The lights of downtown were different and interesting while walking the trail with a snow-capped mountain in the distance was a peaceful journey.
