Geocaching in the Cold


Temperature waking up this morning was 9 degrees and when I left the house at 9:45 am to meet friends and family to go Geocaching it was around 15 degrees.  We met at the end of Blackbridge Road and did the Geocaches in Rocky Glenn State Park that are mostly along Al's Trail.  It seems that there are quite a few side trails that go all over the place and we didn't get the last cache because of that.  Once you get up on the ridge it's pretty flat and could be some nice riding but is quickly short lived because the trail quickly becomes more suitable for a mountain goat.  Still we had fun, despite the frigid temperatures.

Found the second Cache

That's about a 100 feet down from where I am standing

Trail goes right between the branches


Cave but more like an old mine


Icicles


That is the cache

Cool. I used to hike/ climb there before there was a trail (and when there was still a rail bed!) We never did find the cave, though.
