Wow, what a geocaching view
The best thing about geocaching is the places you discover with incredible views. Places that make you stop and breath in the nature surrounding you. The views that fuel your soul and touch your heart. There are several geocaching spots that I would like to share with you from 2017. I am truly looking forward to what the future holds.
Hooper Battery, Covington KY
Let us start with Hooper Battery as a historical location that I didn’t even know was there. I had driven by the driveway for this place several times and have no idea why on this particular day in June 2017 I turned on app and discovered there was a geocache up the hill. What a neat tucked away history site (take a few minutes to read the write up from the CO on what happened here). Then take a seat on one of the benches and look north. Wow, what a view.
My husband was really surprised at what we found on a small back road in Carrolton KY in July. He had been to Butler State Park several times growing up but had no idea what we were in store for. Lock Dam intrigued both of us. It was built in 1836 and I can’t even begin to fathom what passed thru this river on the way to the Ohio River during its life.
West Point, KY
West Point, KY was an amazing surprise and I would love to go back and really take the time to visit and read the tons of historical signs in this small river town. We were in the Louisville area for a model car swap meet and I went geocaching while my husband attending his event. If you get the chance I highly recommend going thru the West Point Museum.
Vacation in TN
In August we traveled to TN to view the total Solar Eclipse. There are tons of finds in the area that were totally amazing. I will write a blog on the trip alone. The history, scenery and geography was all overwhelming. From now on, all of our vacations will involve geocaching, just to find those elusive places that are off the between path.
GeoTrot, Georgetown KY
Then tourism events had a huge impact on my geocaching obsession during 2017. We both really enjoyed the GeoTrot in Georgetown KY in August. It is partially hosted by the Scott County Tourism and held annually. They truly highlighted some breath taking views in their area and we plan on attending this groups event again in 2018.
Looking back over my list of log finds brings back so many memories of the awesome places we visited this past year. I would highly recommend taking a few minutes of your time to reflect at least yearly on what geocaching has made you feel. The one that moved me the most was Eternal Flame in Indiana. I would have never entered this cemetary without a cache drawing me there. My dad and brothers both served in the military and I cant explain the feeling having them return to U.S. soil safely. This spot touched my heart because of that. What have you discovered while geocaching that made you pause?
