Geocaching Adventure #13

July 12, 2004


On this 100 + day, we went to New Melones Lake with Linda. While enjoying our little boating excursion, we had to check out one of the geocaches at the lake. Hiking up to the top of the hill was pretty daunting because of the heat and fear of rattle snakes, but once we were at the top, the trees provided much needed shade.

After our hike, we took a swim in the lake and an eagle flew above us and landed in the trees on the island where the cache was.




Our Log:

We found this one on a hot 100* day, but definitely worth the trek. The view from the top was great. We were weary of rattling reptiles, but luckily encountered none. However, while we were swimming after our trek to cool off, a bald eagle circled above us a couple of times then finally landed in a tree on the same island as the cache. Yes, it really was a bald eagle!! While we were boating, we saw lots of hawks and another huge bird of prey, perhaps an osprey or red-tailed hawk.
There were a few other logs listed in the logbook besides the ones shown here.
We found a lizard on top of the cache, so we left one inside. . Took Lisa Simpson.
