When we started geocaching in August 2004, Ali wasn't very excited by the game. We found a few sporadic caches starting with a Cleveland Metroparks cache, but weren't very active. We went to Shenandoah in September and I was determined to find some caches. Little did I know that National Parks did not allow cache containers so our only chance for a find were two virtuals. There had been two hurricanes prior to our arrival so the streams were raging. It took us two stream crossings and over ten miles of hiking a loop to come up with the virtual at Whiteoak Canyon. Yes, we crossed the stream in the picture. This is a picture I took very near the virtual location.
