I woke early with a coughing fit so we were up and breakfasted and on the road by 9:30. Today was just a destination day. We decided to pick up a few caches on our way home but only look for those on our side of the road right near the road. We managed to find 15 before we got to Cache Creek. From Cache Creek on we just drove. John had ridden his motorcycle to Kamloops and dropped it off to get a recall done. We wanted to get back to the motorcycle shop in time for him to pick up his bike on our way through.
So, there are no exciting stops or stories on this blog. A few pics I took at various cache sites and not much else. We are definitely in ranch country now. Lots of grassland and scrub brush. The last cache we found on our journey was at the site of the Parke Ranch just a few km north of Cache Creek. We had to climb up a little hill beside the highway pullout and we were checking along the fence line, dodging this rock when I took a closer look at it. A clever hide indeed. This was our 620 cache in 14 days! Not too bad I say. We had a wonderful time. Geo-caching and road trips make great companions. We will do some more of them I am sure. Not as rabid as this one but the challenge of the power trails at Anahim Lake was too good to resist. I am glad we took it on. We had a lot of fun and saw a lot of the countryside there and in Bella Coola we would never have seen otherwise.
Thanks for joining the journey.
