Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Midway the land of ice

This last weekend my family and I headed up to Midway Utah. 

We went up for a drive and had a good afternoon. We drove past Bridal Veil Falls.  In the winter time it really looks cool.

The ice seeps through the rocks in many places and in the wintertime this looks fantastic. 

One of the guys that I work with goes up here a few times a year or more to go ice climbing.  It is in the shade (it faces north) and so when the temperature drops it is ideal for climbing.

I have never gone myself.  The crippling fear of falling and killing myself tends to be a negative when it comes to actually climbing.

I had hopes of looking for some geocaches.  I have found many of them through the canyon so I really did not intend to do much looking.  But heading up the canyon I quickly realized that I was in trouble.

The snow was deeper and deeper. So unless something was going to be hanging in a tree there was not much of a chance that I would be able to find any of it.

When we got to midway we went to see the ice.  someone had made an ice sculpture at the city hall.  It took up a portion of the city block.  It was really impressive, and there was a lot of ice.. I mean a lot of ice.  We spent the better part of an hour walking around and seeing things.

No caches.. but a cool experience.
