Geocache Description:

In an area set aside for kids (and kids at heart) who want to risk their necks on their bicycles.

BEWARE OF NETTLES!


Talk about a dream world for a kid with a dirt bike! Get a load of this place! One of my students that lives nearby led me here. Why didn’t they make things like this when I was a kid? I might take a chance on some of them thar hills myself. I have already planned what I’m going to say to my wife and boss….errr, the other boss, if I should crash. “I know I’m 53 years old but…but....but...

[By the way, I have since run these hills on my bike. The story is posted in the description of my "Are We There Yet" cache.]

Take a look up at the big locust trees! There are more here than anywhere else I’ve ever seen. They must have been planted. Quite a neat ruins here too. Fishing can be good in Snag Creek next door. It’s stocked with striped bass. I heard the birds singing in great numbers, at least around 4 - 5 PM anyway.

My choice of the name Kiss’n Cousins will be self-evident once you get a look at the two locust trees nearest the cache. I’ve never seen such unique bark on the one. Neato! Please make sure to re-cover the film can when you leave. Be careful not to make yourself too obvious to any bike riders in the area.

Enter by way of Cottage Row Road. The parking area is where the red dot is here. We don’t want to cut across private property. Besides, you would then miss the bike hills.

Twist the can out of and into its holder by turning it clockwise. Also be careful, not to break any bark.

Find...

  • stereo pair of the locust bark near the cacheThe object here is to stare at the center of the white line between the images then slowly cross your eyes till you see three images. Once that is accomplished force your eyes to focus on the center image. If you can do that and maintain three images, the center one will be in perfect 3D!! The more you try to do it, the better you will get at seeing 3D pictures like this one.
  • This shows why I chose Kiss'n Cousins These are two locust trees that grew together.
