A recent geocaching quest into Smith Valley had all of the elements of a perfect geocaching adventure.
Mallory and Eileen overlooking Smith Valley, Montana
The discovery of little gems we would have otherwise missed
The benefit of learning new things
Exercising in the great outdoors
Uncovering traditional caches with lots of trinkets
Finding a novelty geocache
Successfully finding and logging all of the caches
The first stop on our geocaching mission took us to a site located on Highway 2 West. When the GPS coordinates indicated it was time to pull over, we found ourselves in a nice spot on the side of the highway with ample room for safe parking, as well as rocky cliffs for climbing and exploring.
