My Dad came over to visit us in Chaplin today and, of course, brought along his new GPS unit that we bought for his May 2nd birthday. I had a travel bug from Georgia that I needed to drop. The nearest cache to Cha-Wi-Ma Campground is Diana's Pool, a stretch of the Natchaug River down from us that is a popular swimming hole. Dad, Duncan & I walked the trail along to river to locate the cache. It was a little tricky to find, completely hidden under some dry leaves. But I poked around with a stick and triumphed in the end! Here's Dad about to drop the "Monster Avalanche" travel bug into the geocaching container.
Dad's first ever geocache! Hopefully, we'll get do more together this summer.
