Skywatch Friday – 1500th Geocaching Found

20180410-122703-7

Tuesday at noon I was signed up to go to a “Lunch and Learn” at work. That is where a vendor agrees to buy us engineers lunch if we agree to listen to their sales spiel. However, it was such a nice day, I ditched the lunch and learn and decided to go look for a new geocache named “RiverCache” right on the banks of the Arkansas River. So I drove down there and went walking along the river using the geocaching app on my cell phone to guide me.

It took me to this little “social trail” on the river.

Which led to this little wild and wooly hobo trail.

After about fifteen minutes of looking here, there, and everywhere I found it!! Actually the photo is not the actual cache. To be fair to other finders and the owners of the cache I am using a photo from another cache I found years ago. The one I found on Tuesday was a lot smaller than this.

I found my first cache on Valentines Day 2004 so I have been at it for over 14 years. I only find a few dozen a year now but I still love it. Check out geocaching.com to get more information about the sport.

Skywatch Friday – Sunrise, Sunset…

Spring and daylight savings time is here and I am loving it. The air is warmer, a bit more humid, and it feels great. I love Fall and Winter but I am always ready for Spring.

Plus I like the extra time after work to go run on Turkey Mountain or the River or other places. It is making that much harder to get my taxes done though. Anybody else a procrastinator?

Outdoor Wednesday – The Flowers are Blooming at Woodward Park

_DSC0479

I took my “good camera” to work Tuesday just do I could check out Tulsa’s Woodward Park at lunch. The tulips and azaleas and other plants are blooming right now and the old park was putting on a show.

There were hardly any people there and I had the place pretty much to myself. I ended up taking 72 photos. Makes me glad for digital photography. I love film and have several film cameras but it is an expensive habit to get into.

It is such a beautiful time of year.

Even the hula hoopers were out.
