Molly and I went hiking at Deer Creek Canyon Park today to continue mapping trails. We hiked 7 miles of snowpacked, muddy, and sometimes icy trail to record 1 mile of new trail. I love it! We both had a great time and the weather was awesome.
A light fog hung in the trees most of the day making the forest soft and serene.

One thing I like about Geocaching in a large metropolitan area like Denver is, the fact that just about any place you go you can find a Geocache near by. Today is was no exception. After picking up supplies at an area lumber yard, I checked to see if any caches were near by. Less than a block away I found (GCG40A) How Accurate is YOUR GPS?. I took the opportunity to calibrate the altitude on my new 60CSx.

I will start my post by saying that Molly doesn't like all the dogs she meets. Some dogs she will tolerate and others, she will even play with. On occasion, from a great distance and for no apparent reason, she will see a dog that  excites her to the very core. Molly gets so excited she is uncontrollable. This was the case as we were walking tonight. Molly saw a dog that really excited her. The distant dog owner seamed to be surprised that his dog was beginning to jump around and whine too. By the time the dogs were close enough to touch each other, both  had become uncontrollable. To save ourselves from injury we released them from the leashes. I must say, I would gladly pay the $50 fine for allowing the dog to run off leash as it gave me great pleasure to watch them play together. After a good wrestling match, they decided to chase rabbits. Something primal came over them and the world became a hunting ground. I was fascinated, as I watched their instincts kick in and the two began working together to corner their prey. Thankfully, the dogs were unsuccessful and after a time tired, returning to their owners who waited with a new respect for their Canine friends.

Last night Molly and I skipped our regular walk because the wind chill was -25°f. Today the high temp was only 7°f, but we decided to brave the cold for a few hours and hike around Chatfield. Brrr, it was cold! Molly wore her boots to keep her paws warmer and had a good time running around in the snow. I stayed warm enough, except my face that was exposed, and followed Molly around until she tired and started getting cold.

Had a few minutes between jobs today so I checked for nearby Geocaches. The closest were Micro caches and I don't particularly care for Micro caches. I decided to find them anyway. Found (GCT5DW) Time for Peace, (GCT5EP) Buster's Bark Park, and (GCT5E8) Ditchin' School. All were small, log only, camoed containers hanging in trees. Ho Hum! The hunt did give me an opportunity to use my new GPSr.

Molly had to stay with the Vet for a few hours to get her annual check-up and vaccinations. While I waited, I took my new Map 60CSx out for some Geocaching. Found  (GCTB1P) Littles cache, (GCTAN7) Mambo #5, and (GCT9A7) Out The Window, bringing my find count to 215.

It's Molly's birthday today! Three years old. I took Molly to her favorite place to run and play, Chatfield Dog Training area. We goofed off for a couple of hours and really enjoyed ourselves.
Happy Birthday Molly

Super Bowl Sunday! No I didn't watch the game! I took Molly for a long walk to a dog Off-Leash area a few miles from our home. After molly tired of running amuck, we went Geocaching with my new GPSr. Found (GCRV2T) Turtles & Toads.  I do love my new GPSr.

For over two years now I have saved the cash back awards from my credit card in order to purchase a new GPS receiver. Today, I got it! A Garmin Map 60CSx. If I hadn't saved the awards, I'm sure I wouldn't have spent so much on a GPSr, but this was like getting a birthday present. No pain in the wallet. This unit has a steep learning curve and lots of bells and whistles to figure out. I will enjoy every minute. To test the unit out I found (GCR0Z2) Starlight Starbright.
