Geocaching Adventure + Landscapes

On one of the last warm days of fall in New York, Matt and I went on a little geocaching adventure. This was the first time i’ve been in about 2 years! During one summer my friend Dani and I would spend whole days just going around local areas with a hiking GPS seeing how many caches we could find before it got dark out. If you have no idea what i’m talking about, check out Geocaching.com!

We headed to a nearby park/beach that had 3 caches within walking distance. Now that I have a decent smartphone the geocaching app speeds up the process! Big fan of this mural.

Getting warmer?

We found a tiny one under this bridge

…And another one along the bushes of a baseball field. I hope to make it out ‘treasure hunting’ one more time before it gets too too cold out :) Geocaching is my favorite way to enjoy the outdoors & explore areas you frequently pass by, but wouldn’t otherwise spend time in because you haven’t had a reason to. There’s always going to be something nearby to find.

  1. This is the coolest thing i’ve read about in a while! I’ve never heard of Geocaching, but this post got me to check out their site. Thanks so much for sharing! This looks like it was so much fun. I need to try it out!

    Thanks Tiffany! I wish we had more time to go that day, I would have had more photos :) I found out about Geocaching from a movie about it called Splinterheads. Let me know if you give it a go!

  2. I’ve always wanted to do geocaching, but I’ve just never known where to start!

    Definitely download one of the apps on your phone! Start with ones that are rated as easy or ‘large caches’ and check out the comments from users about the difficulty and how much exploring it involves :)

  3. I’m about to go on a big road trip and this seems like the perfect idea! It will be a great way to explore and a good reason to get out of the car and stretch.
