Yesterday we finally made the drive southwest to grab our 600th cache. It was an absolutely perfect day for caching...low 60's, and sunny. We started the day with 583 finds, which meant we had to find 16 caches to reach 599 and set ourselves up for #600. It was a fun trip with a great mixture of cemetery hides, park hides, a few guardrails, and a few hikes. We usually aren't big fans of these park and grabs, but when we have a milestone in sight, and shorter days, we do what we have to, and a numbers run is always fun.
We finally got ourselves to 599 and headed our way to New Glarus for #600. Finally after watching the cache for a long time, waiting for the time we could make the trip we pulled up to the parking coordinates for "The Tunnel of Terror". We love the hikes on the old railroad bed trails, and this one happens to run through a tunnel built in the 1860's. This will go down as one of our favorite caches, and will be added to our top 5 list here on the blog! We spent over an hour exploring the tunnel, and the area around and above it. What a perfect setting for a cache!
Enjoy some pictures taken throughout our day of caching!
