Geocaching in Menifee

After John got finished washing & waxing the MoHo(no he didn't hurt himself, but it did take 2 days) we decided to do some geocaching. This area seems to have a lot of active cachers with many differnet types of caches.

Our first couple of caches were easy but our 3rd one was rated a 3 star for terain and it was straight up a hill. We parked the car at the bottom of the hill and started the long walk towards the top. Needless to say we stopped a few times.

John found the cache at the bottom of a huge round boulder. Luckily, the boulder didn't move while we were signing the log and exchanging some items.

The view from the top of the hill was fantastic. Here's a shot looking back towards our campground. Notice the dairy next to the campground. This is where all of the flies came from when we stayed here in November. Now there's no flies because of a recent frost. They'll probably come back here in the spring.

Here's another shot just a quarter turn from the last one. As you can see, there's a lot of houses where there used to be fields. You can see our car at the bottom of the hill.

We're up to 55 caches found. We set a goal of 200 caches by the end of 2008, so we'll be spending a lot of time geocaching. It's fun, and if you visit us, or we visit you, we'll take you out to "cache"

Wow, that was a big hill and what a great way to exercise! I didn't notice any adorable geocache fanny packs handmade by your children in the pictures though...where are they???? Hey, maybe we can find some caches at Best Friends?
