Well, the cold snap seems to be over and I must say the warmer temperatures are most welcome...this is why we come down here in the winter! The temps were in the high 60's today and it's even supposed to get into the low 70's later in the week...YAY!
Steve had showered, had breakfast and had his riding stuff ready to go shortly after 9:00 this morning. All I had done was had breakfast. So when a car pulled up at about 9:15, I wasn't exactly ready to entertain guests! It was Deb and Ray...our Canadian friends that we had spent a good part of last summer with in the interior of BC. They had spent the night up at Plomosa Road and had driven their car down to scout out spots here at La Posa South. We knew they would be here this month but we weren't expecting them for another week or so...what a nice surprise! After big hugs and a quick chat, they continued on with their scouting and Steve went to check the oil and tires on his quad before his ride today.
Just before 10:00, he headed off to meet Rob...and I jumped in the shower. I was out of the shower when I heard a quad...it was Steve returning. Well, I guess the ride that Rob had planned with his friend got cancelled but Rob neglected to let Steve know. Well, so much for my alone time today!
Steve asked if I'd like to go geocaching...sounds like a plan, but I had a few things to do first. So it was going on noon when we headed out on our quads. Bob (and Sue) had placed a new string of caches out in November, so we thought we'd hunt them down. It was a bit cool going against the wind as we went west, crossed the highway and went through La Posa Tyson Wash to Old Yuma Road. There, we headed south and with the wind on our backs, it was much warmer...as a matter of fact, it ended up being a beautiful warm afternoon! So nice after all the cool temps we've been having!
Steve found the first geocache...
We drove up to Yum Yum Mine...Steve is already up there and took this picture of me on my way up...
The mine entrance is blocked off this year...last year, the guys were able to walk right in. It is one of the most interesting mines that we have seen...to see pictures (of what you can't see now), take a look at our blog post from last February...click here.
We even managed to find our way home...just like we know where we are going! After a few years, some of the trails are starting to look familiar! It was after 3:00 when we pulled in...a few hours out in the afternoon sunshine and 27 geocaches found!
One last thing...I forgot to post a picture of the sub panel that was installed yesterday...here it is!
