|Dupont Forest geocaching map|
We took a Christmas eve hike in the Dupont Forest
. Where is that, you might think? The answer is that it's in beautiful western North Carolina close to Brevard. Dupont Forest has breath-taking waterfalls and great hiking trails. There are also a lot of geocaches.
If you are not familiar with that term, see this earlier posting of mine.
Geocaching is a great way to see the outdoors, take in some hikes, and go to places that you would never go to. Often we see unusual things---
|N or Z ???|
You can't see it but there is a micro-cache on this tree, and the cache is named "Mark of Zorro". I loved Zorro as a kid. My daughter said it's not actually a "Z", but an "N". I suppose she's correct, but regardless of the letter it has become, I had to admire the tree for overcoming the trauma that bent it in this shape to begin with. (It's a white oak, by the way, for you biology majors out there.)
I never would have seen and appreciated this work of nature without geocaching, and it's a fun moment to add to many fun moments with this hobby. Have a nice Christmas!!!
