Geocaching in Tucson : Late night hunting

moon photograph by M. LaFreniere, GeocachingCactus9:30pm March 31, 2018 tammy_b rings me up. “There’s a bunch of new caches over by your place. You want to go?”

So off we went by the light of the car’s lamps searching along dirt roads surrounded by the quiet desert.

March 29th tumbleweedeb had put a bunch of caches out, creating a compass with a blue mystery circle cut into a 8piece pie of green microcaches. An epic ode to all the characters of Lost. That’s the night we saw a rattlesnake too.

And then I looked up.

The full moon hung brilliantly above us. It was so big you could almost reach out and touch it.

Breathtaking!

I even saw the rabbit in the moon making omochi (Japanese folktale).

That’s the thing about geocaching. You never know what you’re going to see. One moment it’s a rattlesnake and the next it’s the rabbit in the moon.

GC7M8nN5 is a good starting point.
