As I mentioned recently, I've had a secret desire to fill my Jasmer grid from 2002 to present. After my trip to Chicago, I just needed 1 more - February 2002 - but there were none in the neighborhood. I told Steve (TaGeez) about one near Spring Arbor, and he was all for an adventure! Only problem? I have a leased car and am over in my miles. Sister to the rescue!
Thank you, Lorna, for the loan of the green geo-mobile! Steve also appreciated finally having some leg room!
The weather started overcast, but the closer we got to Jackson (and then onto Spring Arbor) the sunnier it became! On the plan were 4 Virtuals, one Earth Cache, several cemetery caches, and Lime Lake Isthmus GC3A12 (my February 2002 cache).
I'll let my photos tell the story:
|Target caches - Virtuals in white|
|First Stop is a Virtual: Stonewall Jackson? GC9304|
|TaGeez and scrapcat at Lime Lake|
|Found it! February 2002 cache!|
Lime Lake Isthmus GC3A12
|Beautiful day! Unwittingly getting a little sunburned right now|
|The lake was so clear you could see the rocks underwater!|
|Falling Waters Trail was formerly a railroad track/train bridge|
|Spring is finally rearing her head|
|View from the Earth Cache: Missing River GC4FATZ|
Due to poor construction, the tunnels under the railroad bridge didn't allow
water to flow so half the river became a lake and the other half diverted course
|We had a great time on the Falling Waters Trail|
Can you spot the geocacher?
|Sign in Concord Township just before the cemetery|
|Can't give the GC for this baby - no spoilers, but this|
was a fabulous multi-hide in a cemetery
|Third of four Virtuals today: W.H.L. GC9932 deserves its 93 Fave Points|
|El trabeio rustico is the practice of creating objects resembling wood out of concrete|

|There are 17 "wooden" bridges of different styles in this park|
