Somehow, when you're out in the woods looking for treasure, time just flies by. We've easily lost track of several hours at a time. But we end up finding hidden pieces of the forest we would never see otherwise.
Below? This is actually a geocache. It quite alarmed Paul when he found this rat hidden amongst the rocks. The belly of him was hollowed out, and inside was a teeny tiny geocache. Just big enough to sign your name on a slip of paper to mark that you'd found him. Of course the rat is now a favorite of ours.
A long lost ruin, deep in the woods in the mountains. This used to be part of a radio tower I think.
The mysterious car that is on the side of a mountain just off the hiking trail. No road nearby. Who knows how it wound up there.
Painted rocks seem to be all the rage right now, and we found our first on top of a trail sign. It's a little Yoshi. We rehid it.
An interesting caterpillar. Look at those colors! I was fearful to touch him with all those spikes.
Sorting through the trinkets, looking for things to trade. This cache was under the faux rock formation to the left.
