Geocaching in Tucson : false clue
It was a coincidence. Since it was a church yard, the rock was left by a nongeocacher for his girl. tammy_b said she saw it there the year before too. I thought it was sweet and wondered what the story was. Why a rock and not cards or something?
The cache was not too far away though. Sometimes when a clue seems so obvious (and you don’t know it’s not a clue at all), you just have to let the illusion go so that you can find the real object of your desire. A decoy can keep you searching in the wrong area, even if it’s just a few feet in the wrong direction that can make all the difference.
Breathe. Let it go. Aha! Found it!
I thought it was funny seeing that rock because I was out geocaching with tammy_b. She’s a friend of mine really into geocaching and she’s introducing me to the sport.
GC74ZP1 is in a lovely church’s courtyard. Saint Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Church. I should have gone into the church too. I’m sure the architecture would have given some lovely photos but I was on the hunt and a tad distracted. I get like that sometimes.
Raven Art Studio wrote up a cool description of the labyrinth in honor of the labyrinth around the fountain:
WHAT IS A LABYRINTH A labyrinth is not a maze but a meditative device with a single winding path that leads to a center or end. A maze has many different paths and dead ends to choose from. ….
When people create a geocache, the description will often contain information about what inspired the cache, an explanation, or history of the place. I love reading the descriptions.
Raven Art Studio did a series of geocaches around Tucson at the various labyrinths in the city. I hope to see more of them. Sometimes they are not right at the labyrinth but closeby because caches have to be a minimum of 512 feet away from each other. So if another cache is too close, you have to move yours a little further away until you are out of range. This happens a lot in an urban city because of the high number of caches. This one Raven could locate right at the labyrinth.

Also inspired by my experiences in geocaching, i have designed this t-shirt
US Amazon : Found it! series 1 geocaching t-shirt
You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did today with “coyote”. I set the category to “apparel” expecting to see coyote t-shirts but surprisingly there is tactical clothing in desert colors — khaki and military green. On another day, the results may be different. Search engines intrigue me.
I am the designer/creator of the t-shirt Amazon pays me a royalty if you buy the shirt. Yay! I am also an Amazon affiliate on the US site. This has no effect on your price.
