Molly and I went Geocaching on this last day of 2005 and found our 200th cache. Woo Hoo! Not only did we find 4 Geocaches, but we meet several Geocachers also. At GCRRCK "FOXRIDGE FALLS" We meet BluePearl, Showmethecache and Micky & Gang. Molly enjoyed being petted by all of our new friends. At GCJBAN "Mindawg's Seedling" we meet Lobo Solo. Lobo Solo, Molly and I looked for some time before finding this cache in the first place I looked when we got there. Humm! Not sure how I missed it. Any way, it was a great day for caching and meeting new people.

Molly and I haven't done anything exciting for several weeks and we are looking to get out this weekend. I hope to end this year strong, with a day full of Geocaching, and kick off the New Year, with a day of Ice fishing in the high country. I quit work early today and took Molly to Chatfield Dog Training Area to start the Holiday weekend early. As always, we had lots of fun!

Unfortunately, the recent cold and snow has put a damper on our adventures. We have tried to find several Geocaches in the snow, with no luck, and we just haven't had the inclination to head up into the high country. I guess this could be a good thing, as all my Christmas shopping is nearly done and almost all my wrapping. Molly and I headed out to the dog training area at Chatfield Park today for some exercise and fresh air. I noticed that the lake has frozen over enough for a few fisherman to venture out, so, if I get off work early some day this week, I might drop a line too. The South Platte river looked beautiful with partial ice cover and the ducks were taking advantage of any open water. Lots of Mallards and Golden Eye swimming about. Molly liked being able to run on the ice and did a few 360's when she tried to change directions to fast.

At about 2:30 PM today, the outdoor temperature finally moved above 0° F, so, I decided that I should take Molly for a walk while the sun was still out and the temperature was, well, warmer than it will be tonight. I bundled up and headed out with the dog. We walked about 2.5 miles including a bit of trail that took us to an area we have seen coyotes before, although we did not see any coyotes today. Notice Molly's Ruffwear "Bark'n Boots" in the photo, these boots help protect Molly's paws from extreme temperatures. We have used them to protect her from hot sand and prickly pear too.

I was working just two blocks from this cache today (GCQ1FJ In a perfect world...)  and decided to brave the 15°F windchill and 40mph winds to find it. Well, I found it and to be truthful, it wasn't much fun. I didn't even look at the swag in the cache, just singed the log. Brrrrrrr!

I didn't feel so well yesterday, so, Molly and I just hung around the house wishing we were hiking or Geocaching. Today, I felt better so we got an early start and went for a hike in the snow. The Temp was a cool 18° F with a feel of 6° F when we started. Molly loves to run in the snow and had a great time. Hiked around for about two hours when Molly had problems with snow balls between her toes. Decided to call it a day and headed home.

I finally updated my map for White Ranch Park. I have mapped over 20 miles of trails in the park over the past two years. This is the most comprehensive map I have made to date. Molly and I have visited the park four times now and have made many notes about our trips. I am also trying to sync my photos with the map for future reference. Over all, a very fun project. We still have several miles of trail to map and Molly and I look forward to every step.
