Today we went from South Lake Tahoe over Carson Pass to Sonora. From a geocaching perspective the day did not go as expected. However, the unexpected events were of both positive and negative character. To start with the positive, we had the pleasure of being first finders of a very nice cache 5297,5 miles from home. We also set another record as we made our highest find so far at an elevation of 8575 feet. That is more than 8000 feet higher than most elevated cache in our country! On the negative side we had to realize that our trip over the Sierra Nevada mountains resulted in far fewer cache finds than expected. Many caches were still hidden under huge amounts of snow! Another negative experience was our second encounter with the police during our visit in the US. It happened in the evening in Sonora. We had just logged a Park'N'Grab and were about to return to our car as we were met by a police car with an impressive light show - as well as an officer asking us to come forward with our hands raised!!! Luckily he was quickly convinced, that we were only harmless geocachers, not graffiti painters, and we were allowed to take our hands down again.
This cache was the biggest surprise of the day. We had definitely not planned to hunt first finds, but this cache just happened to be on our route. It took a while to identify the brilliant hide. We signed the logbook at 13:51. We have seen similar methods previously, but this is definitely the best version so far! A clear favorite point from us!
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
