Edworthy Park

We're enjoying Indian summer here, and I've been out geocaching every day this weekend. On Friday I found 4 caches, including two on Elbow Island (also known as Hobo Island). I was a little leery of going there, but although I saw a few camps I didn't encounter any hobos. Then on Saturday we went to Edworthy Park and did 8 caches, pretty much exhausting ourselves in the process.

We were in an area of the park we hadn't visited before, and it is beautiful but very hilly. I should look for a good trail map I can load on my GPS -- I know there is one available for this area -- because trying to navigate the park by GPS compass mode can lead to some difficult climbs and long detours. We've been carrying walkie-talkies, and they have come in useful a few times.

Pathway by the Bow River

Today we did just one cache, walking along the Bow River north of downtown. I'm secretly looking forward to winter, so I can take a break from all this geocaching! But I want to make the most of the good weather while it lasts.
