Sambuca Romana (and thx to Geokashers!)

By: AlphaRomero.com Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Micro

It was after 12 noon and I started at 8 am, so I was getting anxious to get back to my vehicle. Thanks!

A Little Oak near a Picnic Table

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

This was my second find of the morning, just after 8am. This was my every-other-Friday off work, and I was doing my best to enjoy it. Thanks!

Geokashers Peak

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I'm a sucker for extra credit, so uploaded a photo. It was taken a little way down the trail from here, right in the middle of the trail. A toad/frog was taking a sun bath. Thanks!

On A Clear Day You Can See Forever In Coe

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I could see Coyote Reservoir the Lick Observatory, but the Sierras? That may be stretching it. Thanks!

Antler Tree, Knobby Base

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Not chosen

It was a bit chilly out here this morning and some gloves would have been nice about now. But it warmed up quickly, and I ended up carrying my sweatshirt for most of the hike. Thanks!

Henry W. Coe - Coyote Creek Entrance

By: DragonsWest Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

Found this just before 8am. This is my every-other-Friday off work, and I decided to make the best of it. In my car, I had just followed a herd of 50 or so turkeys running down the road not far from here. Thanks!

Upper Anza Trail Junction

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Not chosen

I also had some trouble with this one, but I kept after it, and after awhile it popped out at me. Thanks!

A Coe Park Tribute to Geokashers

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

My thanks to both Geokashers and WERDAVE for placing caches where I want to hike. The caches make a nice trail map by themselves. Thanks!

Pedal up some more

By: georgeandmary Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Micro

I was not pedaling here, which was fortunate since I would have been off and pushing. Thanks!

I B Cairn 4 U

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

I didn't even pay attention to the cache title until I happened onto it, while mostly looking up. Thanks!

Junction Oaks

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

No worries about other trail users today. I saw one cyclist and one ranger in a pickup. Thanks!

Monkey Oak for Novices?

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

No problems retrieving this. The hint got me headed in the right direction. Thanks!

A Big Mossy Rock, A Small Mossy Tree

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Regular

The hint made for an easy retrieval here. Thanks!

Strewn Branches

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

My mind and stomach were focused on getting back to my vehicle after nearly five hours of hiking. This cache was uphill and off the main trail. My legs complained, but I made the short hike. Thanks!

What Have We Here?

By: Geokashers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

I'm not sure what we have here, but the cache was easy to find. Thanks!

Along The Anza Trail

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

I wandered a little bit, but soon spotted it. Thanks!

Tribute to Marky and Joani in Coe Park

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

The container looks OK, but it was full of water again. The double bagging worked fine and kept the log dry. I replaced the cache upside down so we can see how that works. Thanks!

Gilroy Hot Springs

By: AlphaRomero.com Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

I had noticed the buildings across the valley earlier in the hike, but its nice to have the full story. Thanks!

Bend in the Road, Rocks, Oaks and a Cache

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

I missed this on the way up Coit Rd, but had another look after heading down Anza Trail, and spotted it. Thanks!

Reason #9 to visit Coe

By: AlphaRomero.com Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Micro

When I saw who hid this cache, I knew more or less what to look for. Found it fairly quickly. Thanks!

Rootless Stump?

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

I made a quick work of this one as I headed up Coit Rd this morning. Thanks!

A Chair Tree?

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

Standing right in front, I didn't notice this one until I read the hint. Thanks!

Toys In The Attic - Mt Umunhum

By: Dr. Agon Swest Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

Nice morning for a bike ride. The hide was excellent and the coordinates were great. Thanks!

Is that a bay along Woods Road?

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

This is my every-other-Friday off work, so I decided to treat myself to a bike ride after spending the last 6+ months fixing up the old house, selling it, and buying a new house. Thanks!

Up a dry creek -- most of the time

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I went too far up the creek on my first attempt, then I went back down and tried again. Thanks!

Cubicle Escape

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

This was my turn-around point. The trail was getting steeper, I was pushing my bike more, and it was nearing lunch time. Thanks!

Joe's Trail in Saratoga #1/2

By: the evil fishnguy & 10sgrl Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

I rode my bike up and down the trail this morning. It looks like there is a little more work to do bridging creeks. Thanks!

A Ford? A Chevy? Or??

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

A Chevy is my vote. Excellent hide. Thanks!

Just a tree by the trail

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

Another excuse for a break as the trail started to get a little steeper. Thanks!

A pair of stumps and more

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

The coordinates were a bit off for me, but the hint makes it easy. Thanks!

A little madrone along Woods Road

By: WERDAVE Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

I was moving pretty slow along here on my bike. The GPSr beeped, I pulled over and quickly spotted the cache. Thanks for the short rest!

Joe's Trail in Saratoga #4

By: fishnguy & 10sgrl Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I had to replace a log in my nearby cache, so I decided to check out this trail. Thanks!

Cache By Committee

By: CKayaks Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

I didn't have any gloves or tools, but I banged it on the fence a few times and loosened up the rust. I was able to sign, and the next finder should be able to also, if not too far in the future. Thanks!

Gnarly Stump

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

Another excuse for a short rest on my way up Woods Rd. Thanks!

Quite Obvious, Don't Ya Think?

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

I found this quickly without the hint. I was my first bike ride up Woods Rd in a few years. Thanks!

Sierra Azul Nest

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

The coordinates seemed a bit off to me, but the excellent hint leaves no doubt. The outer bag seems made for the job and everything was dry for me. Thanks!
