First Idaho Geocache

After raining most of the night it turned into a cool, sunny morning.  We decided to get on our bikes and hit the trails.  There are miles and miles of trails here in the park and all of them allow bicycles.  It's a great way to explore the park and get some much needed exercise.

Mark had downloaded the closest 200 geocaches so we took the GPS along with us along with a Trackable and a couple of fun things to leave.

Here is our first Idaho Geocache:

The first container wasn’t large enough to leave anything so we headed on to the next geocache.  It was larger so we left a Travel Bug that we had picked up in Texas at Longhorn Cavern State Park.  It will be fun to keep track of its journey. 
Travel Bug found at Longhon Cavern State Park (Texas).  
Traveled 1600 miles to Farragut State Park (Idaho)
I'm always surprised when someone leaves money in the cache.
There's our little jeep.

We found 5 geocaches today and ended up riding 6 1/2 miles.  There are a lot more geocaches and many more trails to explore in the park but we’ll save those for another day.

  1. Now that's an adventure I'd love to have on a Sunday afternoon... or any afternoon. There's a nearby bikepath (I think about 20 miles in length) that now has a geocache hidden about every 10th of a mile. There was a huge MOGA event here in March but we didn't get here in time. What fun!
