Short post, Geocaching at a marsh

This past weekend, me and my mom went to check out a geocache. We had a bunch of travel bugs that we are trying to pass along. When we got to the cache we realized that it was at the other end of a dense marsh of cat tails.

We considered going around the marsh along the tree line, but the snow was deep, so I checked the logs. Apparently there were deer trails going through the marsh, so I started looking for one. I found one (just about wide enough for my feet) and my mom found a different one. The cat tails were pretty tall in places, and the paths meandered and went off in all directions, so it was like a fun kind of maze.

The slight hill visible in the picture above is where the cache seemed to be.

After a little bit we had joined up again near the hill. It was difficult to walk on the snow that was out in the open because you would sink in pretty deep. As we made our way into the forest, we noticed a fresh campfire with no one around, and no tents. We were a ways off from the trail and it took some determination to get to this hill, and we didn’t have any kind of self-defense just in case. It probably wasn’t that big of a concern, but through a combination of that and being worn out from the snow, we decided to head back. We will definitely be back here sometime though. Here are some more pictures from the short hike.
