Geocaching in Wissahickon Park, Philadelphia

Today about thirty of us, divided into seven teams, went geocaching in Wissahickon Park, Philadelphia. It was a very chilly day, but we warmed up a bit once we got moving. We got a list of caches hidden in the park and with the aid of our GPS devices and some hints we found as many as we could. The cache either had a sticker to put on our list, or a stamp, or some other little token. Some were well hidden, and some were more obvious.

After we were finished, I was walking to my car and I heard the unmistakable sound of a large woodpecker calling. I looked up and saw a large pileated woodpecker flying through the trees! I also saw him creeping up a tree trunk. A very rare treat, especially in Philadelphia!

This is your GPS device. You must, of course, take off your gloves to program it.

We found the first one! We got a sticker for our list.

That just LOOKS cold!

Tom finds another one!

Let's consult the device.

We have to climb this?

It's up there somewhere.

Are we close?

Not just any geocache, but the "official" geocache! (that's what the writing says on the container)

What a fun idea for a cold day! We got buried in snow over the weekend, it would have been hard to find anything.
