2016-01-09: Geocaching Through the Snow and the Cold

OK, so the high temperature for the day is only in the 30's, there's still plenty of snow on the ground, and what are we to do but go Geocaching! There are new places to explore, new counties to get, and more caches to find.

So we start off by going east on US-82 and our first stop was the Ralls Cemetery for a cache (GC2WF1M). The cemetery was blanketed in snow, but we were determined to get to it. Having all the snow made for a very picturesque visit as well. We didn't go checking out different headstones, but they did have this huge monument of The Lord's Prayer near the cache site.

From Ralls, we continued west towards Crosbyton and then northbound on Hwy 651. Next stop was the cache at Lakeview Cemetery (GC5MA3G), followed by the cache at Forest Lawn Cemetery (GC5MCGX). The road going up through here leads into the canyon and with the recent snow makes for a good photo.

We made our way on up to US-62, west to Floydada and then back south to Ralls again. Along the way we picked up four more Geocaches, but it was just too cold and we headed back home. We got to explore a little bit of the area and pick up a new county. Hopefully it will warm up soon.
