The second cache, the Texas State Parks Geocaching Challenge cache, overlooked a marina on the lake. A social trail (a track created by people going off-trail) led us to the cache just as much as the GPS coordinates.

We trekked through knee-high prairie grass with black-eyed susans and fading bluebonnets waving in the wind. We passed an irate mama duck who warned us away from her nest. We greeted some fishermen who hadn’t had much luck yet.

And deep in a grove of trees, we found my first cache: an ammo box filled with swag, Texas State Parks trading cards, and a log book.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
