Miocene Mare

7:08 pm - We had some trouble finding the right trail for this one. After checking out the beach, we headed up to the cliffs and kept going until we found ourselves .15 miles south of the cache. There was a very small trail near rhe cliffs there, so we decided to give it a try. It thinned out to almost nothing a few times and ducking through the brush was a challenge - especially when you have a 1 year-old strapped to your back!

Eventually we found our way to a spot pretty close to the cache. From there we did some bushwacking to find the final clue and the cache. TNLNSL.

Not wanting to go back the way we came and without an obvious trail to follow back, we decided to bushwack due west back the the trail we knew about. That was another adventure in itself and we came out kinda muddy and with all kinds of foliage attached to our shoes.

That wasn't anything that couldn't be cured by grabbing some yummy steamed crabs on the way home though.
Thanks for the hunt! Posted by jeff at May 31, 2004 07:08 PM
