Geocaching in Black Mesa State Park, OK




According to Geocaching.com, "Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment."

Here we are out for a fun day of hiking and hunting. First off, we got off our duffs and out into God's spectacular world! Secondly, we were together, all five of us-that's teasure right there! Thirdly, we got to see many beautiful plants and animals, have fun, and excercise all at the same time!! BTW, our GPS unit was only $30, so you don't need a lot of money, either! (Good thing for two teacher incomes!)
