Who are we? We are two wacky artists from either side of the country who have discovered that we are kindred spirits- in fact, elf sisters. We both like to be outdoors and exploring, so we've created the blog to share our adventures!

Lots of hiking, geocaching, and tiny churches

Today was another gorgeous spring day spent geocaching with my dad! My injured foot has finally gotten to the point where I can hike on it again, so today's caching took us through some trails in the woods- my favorite kind of geocaching. :)

Once again we found some pretty unique caches. Despite being in a location where you'd think this would be an easy cache, the hint was "Not a bison tube in a pine tree". Nope, it was a golf ball under the pine tree. ;)

I wish I'd gotten a picture of this one where it was: up on top of a tree branch. You tugged the piece of wood under it in this photo and it pulled the fishing line, releasing the actual cache from the tree. I'm short, so I needed my dad's help in grabbing this one, though. (That happens a lot- caches aren't always placed for short people.)

I absolutely loved this cache. The hint was "This one is for the birds!" so my dad and I both spotted this one at the same time:

This one was the black letters on the white background (turned out to be a magnet).

And this one was the last part of a pirate-themed multi. This was definitely my favorite of the day! The logbook was a map.

We also came across some neat architecture. This was what was left of a manor:

And this is the tiniest church I've ever seen. (The sweet story behind it can be found here.)

It also had a guard dog:

Along the way I made friends with a frog (toad?) and an inchworm. Here are both saying "hi":

And here are some pictures I took throughout the day.

(I love the "Please keep off tree limbs" sign. I know why it was there, though- I wanted to climb on those old, huge tree limbs!)
I'm trying to learn how to use my husband's camera, so I'm hoping to get better at photography as I go. Everything was so green and pretty that I wish I could share that!
