First time at Mount St. Helens

First time at Mount St. Helens

Hi everyone, here’s our first post in over a year. Whoops! A couple of weekends ago looked like it could easily be the last warm, sunny weekend of the year. We knew we had to take advantage of this, and for a while had planned to do our annual trip to Second Beach, since we haven’t been so far this year. But after thinking about it a little bit, I decided I wanted to go somewhere new and different. The mountain foliage is putting on its magnificent display now, so I knew we had to try to see it.

Yesterday, I had Martin Luther King Jr. Day off, but Spenser didn’t, so I took myself on a little solo adventure, my first of its kind. I wanted to take it easy, but also discover a place I had never been to before. The weather was looking pretty spotty all weekend, and I knew I didn’t want to go anywhere with snow by myself, so after a couple of recommendations from coworkers, I settled on Fragrance Lake up on the famously scenic Chuckanut Drive.

Today we decided to try something new after reading a little bit about it during some random internet surfing, and that something is geocaching. Now I’m going to be honest, when I first read about it even I thought it was pretty nerdy. Quoting the official website: “Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.”
