This weekend we geocached for the first time in months. Some pictures:
Perhaps the most amazing moment occurred as we were walking along the path toward a cache: suddenly, we saw a small herd of deer (about 12) bounding through the woods to our right. A man was walking along the same path, coming toward us from the opposite direction. The deer were clearly startled – they tried first to run in the direction of the man, spotted him, reversed toward us. Upon spotting us, they headed off into deeper woods, away from the path. But they were in clear sight for nearly a full minute, long enough for even Jacob (who never seems to be looking in quite the right direction) to have a good look at them. Beautiful and graceful. It was a lovely moment.
Also, we found all 3 geocaches, which is something kind of remarkable for us.
