You might also be entertained by a black lab that has a heck of a time launching off the deck, well the launch is fine, but he lands a bit awkward, whipped out both times I walked past the house.
Once you get out on the trail, on a breezy day near ground zero, stop and listen... You should be able to hear some hummin'. Can you figure out what it is???
The beacon should be pretty apparent, but the hide might be a bit tricky with more than a couple feet of snow. It is a regular size cache.
Good luck and have some fun.
