18 March 2006 #1100 Great Dane Cache
This cache is the last of a series placed by the NEOGEO Dogs at Wooster Memorial Park. We came here to make this a milestone cache because we had so much fun doing all the NEOGEO Dogs' caches at Towner's Woods. The series was also joined by a few other caches placed by others in the park. It made for a really enjoyable afternoon and a spirited hike. We were pushing to get the series finished and get out of the park before closing time. I think we were literally back at the Geo-mobile with less than five minutes to spare.
The flash photo was taken very near the milestone Great Dane Cache. As we were headed to the final, we came upon this John Deere tractor sitting in a field at the woods line. What better place is there to set the camera to take a picture? The other photo was just Ali being silly on the trail. She doesn't often show her lighter side, and I'm usually too slow to catch it. It worked perfectly today.
While we were taking the photo for the Great Dane Cache, we were lucky enough to hear our first woodcock of the season. Since a Geauga Park District program a number of years ago, we've always called the woodcock's ritual woodcock whoopie. It was a fun day.
