High Country Geocaches
BJ had never visited the Sunset Crater or Wupatki National Monuments, so one day we headed out to do the loop through the two Monuments. We visited a Fumarole,
Strawberry Crater Wilderness Area.
stone work in Quartzsite, but the building was just as unavailable.
Bobby Troup's Route 66 song. The town didn't amount to much, but a nearby cache induced us to climb to the top of a nearby cinder cone for the view.
very old cache, but the north side shadows and the altitude conspired against us. We threw in the towel before we even got to it, not wanting to dig through snow to find a cache. In doing so, we added a bit more clarity to our growing definition (and attachment to) the term "weather wimp."
Like elsewhere, geocaching led us to some very interesting places that we wouldn't have seen otherwise and we kept BJ's Fitbit happy.
