CAM 2008: The Final Cache

This was it. The final cache of CAM 2008. Just over 200 miles away from my house. More specifically, this is the path in to where it was, described as a fire access road. This was great. It made the trip in a nice walk. Plus I was there well before sunset for a change.

Fortunately, the location of this one called out to me somehow. The GPS coordinates were pretty close and that helped a lot. This is what the cache looks like. "S" was the final code I needed to decode the location of the picnic the next day.

Since I had daylight remaining, I decided to go after a couple more caches. Here, at what was listed as the trailhead to the CAM cache, there is another cache.

In this picture is a walking stick I picked up somewhere along the way. I forget where. Anyway, the bottom of the tree it's leaning against looked like a good spot for a cache, and there was supposed to be one near here.

And down in the stump there was, sure enough, a cache container. But it was a decoy. It contained just a message to keep looking for the cache, which was a micro cache. I found the cache soon after but I was glad the decoy was there to remind me I was looking for a micro cache.

This critter was also there. I hadn't seen one of these before. It looked like a cross between a bumblebee and a moth. So I punched "bumblebee moth" into Google and found that this creature is commonly known as . . . a Bumblebee Moth.
