Caching Down the American Tobacco Trail

The trail
 The American Tobacco Trail is a Rail to Trail that my husband and I love.  Today we went bike riding and were on a mission to find three geocaches on the section of the trail that is to be closed next week for a year long upgrade. Geocaching involves using a handheld GPS to find treasure boxes, in this case, in the woods.

This was a fun way to spend a beautiful day.  Check out this if you need to know what geocaching is.

 Cache number one was a bison tube attached to a lizard which was in a tree, deep in the woods.  This was a lot of fun, and easy to find.  The paper log to sign our names was in the bison tube.

The next cache was deeper in the woods.  We actually missed the trail going in and had to make our way through some dense pine tree stands.

The cache, placed by the same person as the lizard cache, was a dodo bird container.  Again, it was cute and easy to find.  We signed the log, replaced it and moved on!
