Symbol for the Virtual, or Ghost, Cache

A Virtual, or Ghost, Cache

One bright sunny morning while I was visiting my mother in Clayton, NM, she had to work so I had to amuse myself. There are very few amusements in Clayton. There’s a lake which is so dry that the road to the lake has been blocked off. The theater is limited to three showings per week. There are only six restaurants in town. There’s a small, beautiful museum. But, there’s always geocaching!

Clayton stands at the border of Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. There were two geocaches I particularly wanted to find. One was a virtual, or ghost, cache marking where the three states meet. The other cache is a micro-cache found on the road running along the Texas-New Mexico border.

To earn the virtual find, the geocacher must post a photo standing at the survey marker.

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.
