Searching for Hidden Treasures

My favorite hobby is geocaching. Finding things that people have hidden out in our world.


Geocaching has led me down many trails and paths.

Elf Door

I’ve come across surprising things like this elf door.


And cleverly hidden containers.


Just to find the containers, big and small.


I’ve stuck my hands into crevices where I really shouldn’t have. (I’ve been to the doctor more than once because of ill considered decisions.)


I’ve come across many creatures.


Some small and cute


Others who would eat the small and cute


Some, I’ve helped across the road.


And others that I’ve just greeted and left alone.


Just imagine how wise I’d be if I had spent a fraction of this time looking for wisdom.

“If you seek it like silver, and search for it as for hidden treasures – then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God”

Proverbs 2:4-5

    What a great collection of shots for the day! You do have so much fun and I think it’s wonderful! Hope you and your family have a beautiful weekend! Enjoy!

    Geocaching does absolutely nothing for me but I am so glad you enjoy it. Your posts are brilliant BUT please don’t stick your hand where you shouldn’t – think before looking should be your future motto.

    It is beginning to look like a dangerous pastime. Perhaps you should wear snake-proof gloves. I like that little hobbit hole, though and the fungus container is diabolical.

    Sounds like an exciting adventure every time. Maybe get a hook so you don’t have to use your hand. I’m not sure I would put my hand through any dark openings.

    Sounds like a fun thing to do. But it is true that time would be better spent seeking wisdom. I’m glad you discovered Spiritual Sundays and chose to share with us.

    I am mildly intrigued by geocaching as I always liked treasure hunting as a kid. Haven’t learned the GPS stuff though. And yet the idea of discovering a door to the wee folks home or a fake fungi piques my curiosity. Don’t know about sticking my hands into blind holes. Maybe a stick or camera lens first.
    Certainly seems to be a bit of wisdom gained.
    Thanks for sharing this experience. Maybe I should talk to Mike, the GPS guy, about trying this.

    I had a rock hound friend who hunted for geodes, but it sounds like this might be a different thing. I think they had a geocaching thing at one of the cemeteries in the area not long ago.

    Thanks for the visit and comment on my Joy4Today blog!

    I love how much you love geocaching, Yogi! Nice shot of the coyote. Glad you helped the turtle – what goes around comes around, I say.

    I loved your pairing. Fabulous!
    You really do make Geocaching look like the best way to spend your time — except for the part about ending up at the doctor’s.

    You bring the hobby to life! I love the way geocaching gets people outside and having fun and doing little-kid kinda stuff. It’s great.

    Of course, the tortoise crossing the road is my favorite shot!
