Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

WE FOUND IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today Gerri & I decided to relook at the geocache we couldn’t find yesterday. We went to the geocaching sight on the web and read all the clues and the responses of the people who had found it. There were quite a few that had not found the cache here. After thinking a little longer about possible spots for the cache, we decided to try this one again. The cache is titled “Where’s the Train?” We went back to where the coordinates led us yesterday (the red caboose)and rechecked them when we arrived. Yep, the coordinates still led us to the same place, so we must be in the right area. We looked for about 15 minutes and were about to give it a rest when EUREEKA!!!!!!!, we found it. The container the cache was in is very uniquely and cleverly done. No wonder it has been difficult to find. Gerri took the log out and signed it and then I returned the container to the proper sight it was in.

We enjoyed this cache, but I must say we were growing weary looking for it. It was truly well done and a cache we did not want to get beat with. We have grown very fond of geocaching and find it a lot of fun. It keeps you alert, getting out in fresh air and sometimes walking a good bit. In many caches, you will learn a lot of history.
