The heat wasn’t too bad this morning so we took a short hike out into the desert near the Western boundary of the McDowell Regional Park, and grabbed a cache up on a hill. The 360 degree view was spectacular. Saw a red tailed hawk soaring close to the ground looking for brunch. Magnificent bird.
Went back out to Fountain Hills, and grabbed a few more. It was too hot for Fergie, but we hate to leave her home. There are some along a trail, so maybe early tomorrow we’ll go out again and see what we can find
After Victoria, we spent a few days in Vancouver where we only had the opportunity to grab a couple of caches – one at the Museum of Anthropology on the University of BC campus – unbelievable exhibits, and the other in Stanley Park – both beautiful locations. On our last day in Canada we drove up to Whistler through stunning scenery, and found the one hidden in the Florence Peterson Park. I would have liked to spend more time there (the whole summer!!), but I will return. What a gorgeous place. We visited the Audain Museum home to some amazing First Nation artwork and carvings.
We’re now home, and I’ll hunt for more local caches until our next trip, likely to visit friends in Lake Arrowhead
