I headed out yesterday to do a little caching before the big snow moved in. I knew that I would probably be snow-bound at home for a day or two, so I wanted to get myself a good dose of geocaching to hold me over until I could get back out again. One of the caches I found was the Buckman Pool cache (GC1NX6E) on Mt. Magazine. I had no idea that Mt. Magazine still had a lot of snow on it, since all the snow in the lowlands around Russellville had melted away on Sunday. Nevertheless, I was prepared for the adventure!
I used the horse camp area east of the visitors' center as the starting and ending point for my 1 mile roundtrip hike. As Robert Frost said, "The woods are lovely, dark, and deep." And quiet. And I had them all to myself. A wonderful afternoon, early in February, sunlit and with no hint of the coming storm. This is what geocaching is all about.
Do you have snow caching adventures to share? They don't have to be about Mt. Magazine! They can be from anywhere.
