Geocaching in Kamilche

We decided to change things up a bit and go on a geocaching run on my hike day.  We still managed to hike 7 miles and gain some 1,000 feet of elevation while finding 24 geocaches.  We are both more tired than we are after a 10 mile hike.  Must have been all the off trailing we did.

Here is a sample of some of the caches we found:

Wallace and Jay Lakes

Back to Jay lake.  I've been there once before.  I just needed a good long hike to clear my head and did not need the adventure of going someplace completely new.

I took the Greg Ball trail up and combined the Greg Ball trail and the railroad grade for the trip down.

11.5 miles 1,600 feet elevation

South Mountain

Back up South Mountain to look for my sit pad.  I knew I did not leave it at the top, but I had not seen it since my hike up there.  Rain again, so much rain.  I brought my brand new used camera anyway.  I found my sit pad at a little campsite about half way up.

On the top, wind kept me from pitching my tarp.  But the rains and snow mix stopped and out came the sun and some chances for silhouette shots.  I got a few shots today that I really like.

10 miles 1,000 feet elevation gain.
