    I took an epic 11 mile hike up this fabulous scenic canyon on Aug. 23 with an intrepid band of cachers from the San Fernando Valley and Ojai! BWidget, Cachekidz!, 3rd Wheel, Feral Cat, and gsmX2 joined me for the 5 hours of dodging poison oak and breathing the fresh summer air, finding 27 caches along the way. We started at Devil’s Tongue just above the parking lot, and wound up overlooking the canyon and hillsides from Angle’s [sic] View of the Devil (Cyn). Along the way, I visited my own cache, Daniel Webster, my ammo can that got charred in the fire a few years ago. Thanks to…

    I’m sure that most cachers have a “must do” list of caches that they would love to visit. Ever since I spotted it, the ‘Banwell Bonecaves’ earthcache (GC3M60D) had been on mine. This earthcache was placed at a very unique spot: A cave full of animal bones which had been excavated and placed on display in the 1800’s by The Bishop of Bath and Wells. He claimed that the bones were proof of Noah’s flood and placed them on display as a warning to those who disobeyed God! The bone caves are made all that more special by the fact that they aren’t…

    What better way to celebrate the season than with a visit to Santa Claus, Indiana? I saved this portion of my summer road trip to publish this week. The town must look quite magical during the Christmas holiday, so my sunny photos might not do it justice. There are several town websites to explore. This one doesn’t have many photos: Santa Claus IN. This site has some history: History. a HA! This site has a photo gallery: Celebration, but not many show a winter wonderland. I guess I’ll have to get back there some December and see if it looks more like the North Pole. View of a…

    On my way from Colorado Springs to Phoenix, I drove through some of the most gorgeous scenery on the planet. Durango was a perfect place to stay over night and get a sense of the history of the area as well. It’s a mountain mining town, and reminds me of my own home town of Yreka, CA. I stayed at the General Palmer Hotel, built in 1898 - The Victorian decor and atmosphere was relaxing and charming. In the morning, I took a stroll up Main St. to find the only cache within walking distance. THE BLACK BOX The architecture is a classic mix of old and new. The buildings all have basements. I…

    Driving from the cache at 11,200 feet to Durango was one of the most spectacular drives I’ve taken. After the days and days of flatness, it was a relief to be back in mountains, too, which is my natural habitat. Vista Vows Pillows aren’t for sleeping trail at 11,200 ft view through the trees many valleys wooded trail a pullout with some history along with the view a drove of donkeys I always get a kick out of being at the Continental Divide – it’s an existential meeting of east and west, history and future, humidity and desert.

    Below is a close-up of my current favorite vLog, blogging, photo snapping, video shooting camera.My Sony DSC-WX300 is a very versatile wide angle point and shoot camera with many amazing bells and whistles that fit all of my social network needs. It was perfect for me. Until I noticed the HUGE scratch on the lens. When I first noticed it at the WWFM 11 event my heart sank. It covered  a deep crevice right across the center and about an inch long. It was so deep I could feel the depth with my finger nail. I thought it was ruined.You may be saying to yourself, "Andy, I can't see any…
