    Unfortunately, the MASCOT was unavailable.[​IMG]
    I looked around some... but I think OX has been claimed by Mother Nature!

    He might be hiding in there somewhere - but I didn't bring hip-waders. :lol3

    Too deep to get today. I'll try later to get him and hopefully reintroduce on a later date. For now use anything... :cry

    I saw and left the note.

    If you head up there the other parking area has a nice picnic area and boat access too. Worth a trip!

    [​IMG]

    Oh... and here is that burn area! What a bunch of dumb asses!

    [​IMG]


    Here is a link to all the images including some nice waterfalls along the way in and out. There are many falls and these are only a few!

    [​IMG]

    All the Tag Shots are HERE!


    Looking forward to see where this goes!
    Game On!! :lol3

    Given the open area, the use of the general vicinity for GEOGACHE [​IMG] and the untimely demise of the original mascot :cry I had to place Penelope off to the south side of the bridge, vicinity 47.22.023 123.16.826

    Look HERE

    One time, when I was deployed, I learned a good lesson from a wise old Korean man - he said to me: "Patience is like a muscle - the more you exercise, the stronger it gets."

    Now, that may not be fortune cookie material, but it's all I got :deal

    Oh - belay thaT... Charlie Papazian would probably say: "Relax, Don't worry - have a homebrew." :slurp

    ...and on that note... :bueller
