Geocaching in the Poconos on a Very Cold Day

Today we went hiking and geocaching in the Cresco Heights region of the Poconos on state gamelands. The temperature was in the low thirties, but I had on many layers and we had some uphill hiking, so as long as we stayed out of the wind and kept moving it was surprisingly comfortable. By the end of the day, however, the weather was quite brisk and we were happy to complete our last find. We successfully found three geocaches today!

On our way to the trail we stopped to say hello to some curious friends.

Actually, there was a reason they were so friendly.

My new found friends

Heading to the top of the trail

Vista and view of the Delaware Water Gap. We saw snow falling in the distance.

All bundled up and on the mountain top

Our first find! We left green beads and a mini flashlight, and took a golf ball and a Buck Hill Falls key chain. There was also a disposable digital camera, we took our photo for posterity.

Our second geocache of the day! There was only room for a scrolled piece of paper where we put our "geocache nicknames".

Now the day was getting a lot colder. Our fingers were frozen. This geocache took us to a beautiful view of a stream with some rhododendron.

Third geocache taken out of its hiding place. We left a poker chip and some blue beads, and took a toy dinosaur.

We hiked down to the stream.

While driving out we saw a flock of wild turkeys. There were many more than this, probably about fifteen or twenty, but turkeys move fast!!!!

The three geocaches we found were GC1F8J9 Mountaintop Oven , GC1HNQ1 The BKW Rock , and GC1HNPM Devil's Soup.
