Our geocaching roadtrip in the US was coming to an end and today was our last full day. The main purpose of the day was to get us closer to the International Airport in Salt Lake City. We went from Moab to Lehi and found a bunch of caches along the way. We had one final thing on our "Geocaching To Do List": visiting the cache "9800 feet of mountain with DK_Titan". This required a detour along Hwy 31, which offered many scenic views and nice geocaching experiences.
As the name indicates, "9800 feet of mountain with DK_Titan" is a special cache for us. It was placed by firennice about a year ago, the day he took us to Potters Pond. Obviously we couldn't log the cache last year (as it has not yet been published), but now we got the opportunity. Driving through the mountains brought back great memories of last year's roadtrip from Las Vegas to Seattle.
After finding the cache at 9800 feet we took a drive along the Skyline Drive, where we found three "very lonely caches" (i.e. not found in 12 months). In addition to that we found six "lonely caches" (not found for at least six months), before arriving at the bottom of the mountain in Fairview.
The rest of the trip towards Lehi offered plenty of drive-by caches. We arrived in Lehi right about sunset and found a handful of caches here before checking into our hotel right across the Lehi Roller Mill (known from the movie Footloose).
Needless to say, this is a special cache for us - a MUST VISIT! This cache was found at 14:53. We love this location and award the cache a favorite point!
