A Suprise While Hiking

I know that posts have (or will soon be) up about our most recent hike on Saturday, but I thought I’d share an interesting find from our hike up Barcombe Hill on Tuesday. Beneath an old memorial (consisting of a large stone cross atop large blocks of limestone) for a coal worker killed while working, an unexpected discovery was wedged beneath the heavy stones.

A Geocache!

Geocaches can be part of an organized ‘scavenger-hunt’ like activity, but many individuals leave them out in unusual places for adventurous souls to find. This one had a lovely card on the inside explaining what it was, and even contact information for the person who left it! There was a little notebook inside where we left our mark.

Overall, one of the many wonderful experiences during the hike!
