My mother had a heart attack in March.
I spent four days in her hospital room, leaving only when told by the doctors or when required to leave by nature. Three of those days matched my mood: cold, windy, rainy, miserable. One day was beautiful… and that was the day that my mother was allowed her first bath. Not allowed to return for three hours, I decided I needed to spend some time outside, appreciating life.
I went geocaching.
Did you know Amarillo is the helium capital of the world? I didn’t. If it weren’t for geocaching, I still wouldn’t know.
Alchemy Cache II: Lighter than Air is a fascinating cache. If you ever find yourself traveling Route 66 through Amarillo, I encourage you to find the Helium Monument. Science, history, math, nature, and logic all come together in one cache. Fascinating.
