Nancy's Overlook

By: wildbun & crawburr Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I was surprised at how much open area there was up here. The road is exposed, and was a bit warm this morning. No troubles spotting this one. Thanks!

Prankster's Perch

By: PDFrogs Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I came from Sam McDonald park, and decided to make this my turn-around point. The trail was headed down, and I didn't want to have to climb back up again. I did encounter a number of other hikers and horse riders today. Thanks!

Sam's Big Trees

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

This was my first visit to Sam McDonald, and I thought I got a pretty good tour of the park this morning. I managed to find this one without reading the hint. The coordinates were right on for me. Thanks!

In Sam's Right Pocket

By: Dragons West, Mini Cacher & AirSax Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

I would say that most of the time this cache is accessible. Today, it was inches from being inaccessible, at least when I parked and headed out for a hike. I was able to get to it, however. Thanks!

Hiker's Hut Redux

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

I headed up the hill to the hut about 10 am and met a number of hikers who had just packed up and were leaving the hut. The place was vacated when I got there. It looks like a neat place to stay on a cool winter weekend. Today, there were a bunch of pesky flies in the area. Thanks!

Sam's Legacy

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I think the hint is a necessity for this one. My PN-40 didn't get me very close, and the cache was completely covered with duff. I left a CKayaks Nomad coin, ant took a GeoKret from Poland. Thanks!

Narrow Bridge - 1928

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Another spur-of-the-moment cache on my way out of Uvas Canyon. Another good pull-out and I stayed behind the guard rail as there was a bit of traffic today. Thanks!

Uvas Canyon's Upper Falls

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I headed over here via the Contour Trail from Alec Canyon after replacing my "Logger's Picnic" cache. I read the description and hint a couple times on my PN-40, then it finally all came together. I didn't meet anyone on the trail this morning. Thanks!

SoThirsty

By: Wet Blanket Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

It was a shady hike up here, so I wasn't very thirsty yet. It is surprising how hard it is to spot this cache until you find it, then you can't help but see it when you look in that direction. Thanks!

Mike Ferguson to the Rescue! Uvas Canyon Edition

By: Trail Reader Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I have been up this nasty steep trail before for a different cache. Good thing I have a poor memory of the hike. I have been spending weekends working lately instead of hiking, so I might be a little out of shape. Anyway, I made it up, found the cache, and had my little lunch on top. Thanks!

A Little bit of Sweden

By: Totorama & Lady Pamela Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I was headed for Uvas Canyon Co. Park to replace my "Logger's Picnic" cache, and made a quick stop here just before 8 am. Thanks!

Country Road Bridge And Creek

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This cache popped up on my way out of Uvas Canyon. It was about noon, and there was traffic whizzing by, but there is a good pull-out and I stayed behind the guard rail. Thanks!

Are You Observant? #1

By: Team 'zilla & Mbooski & G.Gadboir Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I first looked for this cache about four years ago. I doubt if I'm getting any smarter, but a few more things made sense this time. I made it though each step, missing lots of the clues. I passed the final, but walked back and had a look at a place that matched a clue and I spotted the cache. I became acquainted with an area of Sanborn I hadn't hiked before, and had a fun time of it. Thanks!

sanborn border

By: aggiejen Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

This was my first hike up this trail, and it was a nice place to be this morning. Thanks!

Todd Creek from Sanborn to a Winery

By: Curtis Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I missed the turnoff to the cache, and ended up finding this one on my way back. No troubles once I was on the right trail. Thanks!

Fix it Again!

By: AlphaRomero.com Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I headed up for a hike in Sanborn, and this was the first stop. I needed the hint to focus on the right area. Thanks!

not on the map

By: aggiejen Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

My PN-40 froze when it was about 37 feet from ground zero. It did the honorable thing, though, and rebooted itself. Meanwhile, a couple was headed up the trail, so I just hiked on by and stopped on my way back. My search was quite a lengthy one due to the GPSr accuracy for this terrain and woods, and the hint. Hint for future finders: don't read the hint.
