Spring Time is Geocaching Time

No geo/techno tip this week. Instead, just a friendly reminder that Spring is here, and this is by far the most enjoyable time of year for geocaching. Temperatures are mild, the weeds are soft and green, and the wildflowers and wildlife are abundant. All great reasons to get out there and get caching before the heat of summer arrives, and you miss this window of opportunity.

As further enticement, here are some photos from my geocaching outing today in Briones Regional Park, located in the hills of the California east Bay Area (between Berkeley and Martinez). This is just a sampling of what makes Spring caching so wonderful:

The hills are all green

The trails are soft and cool

The views seem more spectacular

The wildflowers are blooming

Even the caches are more fun. Here, Ralph picks a winner.

The undergrowth is lusher

Fields of poppies are abundant

Only a rock a Ground Zero?

Nope. Even apparent DNF's turn out to be caches

So get out there and see all spring has to offer to us Geocachers.

Cache On!

I fully agree that the spring is one of the best times to cache. Problem is, sometimes there's not a true "spring" in the Northeast. It's winter, some nice/snow/rain, then summer!
