Seeya at Seely, Transformed

By: sailorscodgers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

I have been traveling frequently from the Bay Area to Sacramento for work. I haven't geocached much, but I spotted this one last trip on a long walk from my hotel, but had nothing to write with. Today I just stopped by on the way to my hotel and quickly signed.

Pokey

By: Nopey and Goo (adopted by Michael_SFBA) Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

I spotted my first hiker of the morning near here, but he headed on up the trail, while I sat and signed the log. Thanks!

(not a) Bay Laurel on Middle Ridge

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

To me, the leaves were shaped more like bay laurel than oak, but pay no attention to me. I hid a cache in the crotch of a madrone, and called it a manzanita. Thanks!

Maddock Homestead

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

I was just putting the cache away when I heard a German family come from the opposite direction. I read about the Maddock family and they took a break at the clearing. Thanks!

1st State Park

By: Kealia & Hula Bum Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

I had never seen this historical marker before, and was a bit surprised it was here. The trail was busy today, but I was able to grab the cache between hikers. Thanks!

SttS trail rest stop

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

The coordinates were not right on for me, but your mileage may vary under the forest canopy. I found it reasonably quickly with the excellent hint. Thanks!

Ocean View Summit

By: Kealia Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I was initially reluctant, but I waded into the brush, and it was fairly easy going to the cache. The excellent coordinates and hint put me right on it. Thanks!

East Ridge to the Sea

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

I made this my first stop this morning. It was a neat area, and perfect hiking weather. I used the detailed hint to find the cache, and I probably wouldn't have found it otherwise. Thanks!

Sequoia swim hole

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

The water was a bit stagnant and brownish looking, so it didn't look very appealing for swimming. I took care to not go swimming by accident, and was just able to reach the cache with my long arms. Thanks!

Going Gazos - Big Basin Edition

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

That's some nice, defect free redwood. Too bad it will sit here until it rots. I was able to stumble on this one without using the hint. Thanks!

Mike Ferguson to the Rescue! Big Basin Edition

By: 50sumtin Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

I have found a couple other Mike Ferguson caches, I'll have to look up how many there are.

Panoramic Water Tank

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

My legs were shot after a long hike in Big Basin, but I stopped here and trudged out to the cache. It was an interesting little spot. Thanks!

Gazos Creek Road trailhead

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

I parked relatively close to here to start my hike. The parking situation was much more crowded when I left early this afternoon. Thanks!

umbra revolvo apex

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

My GPSr seemed to be a bit unsure of the exact location here. I examined several trees, and found the cache quickly after I spotted the right one. Thanks!

Middle Twin Oaks

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

I backtracked a bit to get this one, unfortunately, the way back was uphill. Thanks!

Summit Sentinel

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I didn't read the hint until I had left the trail, but I was right by the cache and spotted it quickly. Thanks!

Hollow Tree Hangout

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I was looking for a hanging type of hide until I took the time to read the description and found the cache fairly quickly. Thanks!

What caused this big clearing?

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

This was my turnaround point, having started at China Grade. I wanted to go a ways down a couple other trails before returning. Thanks!

Johansen Shingle Mill

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

Neat little area. I met my first hiking group of the morning after I found the cache. Thanks!

Rooster Rock

By: CockADoodleZen and Evil Hen (adopted by Micha Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

My initial thought was breaching whale, but to each his own. No problem finding the cache. Thanks!

Hollow Middle

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

I found this on the ground and put it back where it was before, but new plan or a different system could be tried, as a fortune cookie once told me. Thanks!

Black Knight of Middle Ridge

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

I was careful with the black stuff, and don't think I got any on me, not much anyway. I came from China Grade, and turned around here to head back up. Thanks!

Johansen Road Trailhead

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

I quickly planned an outing this morning. I hadn't been this far up China Grade before and there seemed to be plenty of geocaches around. Thanks!

Not So Hollow

By: Michael_SFBA Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

It was fairly quiet here, but I did run into a couple groups heading down to headquarters. The trail looked like it was regularly used. The wooden bridge looked like it hadn't been touched in 60 years, so I walked fairly gingerly across it. Thanks!

Gigantic Siamese Twins

By: GoGoJo Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

Its hard to fathom how big these trees really are just be looking up from their base. Thanks!
