CrackinUp and UMTS Caches

Volume 8, Issue 98; 08 Jul 2005; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Two for two with a gorgeous view of the Pioneer Valley.

Seek not the things that are too hard for thee, neither search the things that are beyond thy strength.

Last Saturday I set out on my second attempt to find “CRACKINUP” CACHE. As I'd failed once before, I took along the coordinates of UMTScache too just in case.

The day was lovely and so was the hike.

When it came time to choose which cache to pursue first, I picked the UMTScache. Heading off the marked trail, I foolishly chose an absurdly steep ascent up the hillside. I was rewarded part way up, however, with a spectacular, globe-shaped spider web standing out in the sunlight.

It took a little while, but I did find the UMTScache

And also the most spectacular view of the Pioneer Valley.

Coming back down (sticking to the trail this time), I headed for the horse caves. Along the way I passed some beautiful woodland flowers.

Down in a valley just beyond and above the caves, and past a frightened little wood frog, I found “CRACKINUP” CACHE.

The hike out turned up a nifty little orange mushroom on the side of the trail and garter snake basking in the sun.

I was hoping to do some more caching this week, but not in the rain.
