Slow to Post

Sorry for keeping you waiting for updates. I have been busy spending every last minute with my son. He left for the Army on Friday and for about the last 2 weeks we’ve been having fun together. Hiking, caching,watching movies and playing card games.

One of the caches was a six mile hike that included 4 parts. There were 2 others along the way. We started out early in cloudy weather.

We had our Geodog Ellen with us and as her and my son rounded a corner they disturbed some Big Horn Sheep. 3 of them took off running. I got a shot of them in the distance.

We got the first part and went on about another mile or 2 then the weather turned really crappy. Fog came in and freezing temps. We decided to head back down the mountain.

We laughed and talked. A time we’ll both remember. I won’t get to hug him again for about 6 months. We’ll all miss him but this is what he wants to be doing. He is going to be a medic.

  1. Loved the photos of your six mile hike. It looks like you folks are having a great time geocaching.

    When you talk to your son, tell him that we appreciate his service to our country. My son served four years in the Marine Corps.
