For some time now we have really enjoyed Earthcaches. In college I took Geology as one of my sciences. It really opened my eyes to the Earth. Johnny has also turned into some kind of rockhound. We can’t go anywhere without him coming back with his pockets full of rocks. Luckily Arizona is an amazing place to study Geology because of the low amount of rainfall. Lack of rain means less vegetation to hide the Earth and less change due to erosion.
Anyway, we enjoy Earthcaches. Shortly after they were created we started hunting them and learning even more about the Planet. We grabbed all in our area, then created three of our own. It is always nice to see the logs of the people visiting our Earthcaches as they are always thoughtful, no TNLNSL.
We try to grab Earthcaches everywhere we visit. In California we visited a cache south of Joshua Tree NP, and the dunes of Glamis. In Nevada we saw the Valley of Fire, and some Earthcaches West of Las Vegas. Utah saw us visiting some dinosaur tracks and skin prints. In Arizona we have visited lava tubes, ripples in rock, and volcanoes. This left us with one more state to log an Earthcache in to gain our Earthcaches Master Platinum pin, we chose New Mexico since it was the closest state we hadn’t visited. All of these visits put us closer to Platinum Earthcache Master.
I searched for something close to us with a few Earthcaches to experience. Outside of Grants, NM there were nine Earthcaches within a 50 mile radius. This sounded like a great opportunity to grab a few in one day.
We had our location and I had figured out our route and when we would go. Now for the excitement.
Follow our journey in our next blog post. It has many interesting happenings which make for an exciting story.
Until next time,
Mark & Johnny
