Well, we hiked a mile and a half up into the mountains and found the first cache-- What a beautiful view up there! We had two delays getting to this spot--the first when we came upon two huge and very lost dogs and I decided that we needed to share one of our water bottles with them. I don't think I have ever seen dogs this thirsty
The second delay was when we came upon a 5 foot long snake slowly making it's way across the trail.
Then we hiked about a mile and a half down into a canyon and found the second cache... still having a lot of fun with it
Then we headed for the third cache and got lost.... We tried following a stream that we figured would lead out to a main road eventually... but we came to a waterfall and a 40 foot drop, so we had no choice but to climb out of the canyon...er.. without a real trail to follow... and we only had one bottle of water left..,
4 hours after we found the second cache we finally made it up out of the canyon and onto a dirt road that eventually lead to a very high scale neighborhood, and then made our way back to the car...
Man, do my feet hurt....
But it was still a lot of fun!
