Squak Mtn Lookout

Great views of Mt. Rainier in the distance. We started late and completed our hike using head torches in the dark, and had to extra careful because the toads ventured onto the path once the light went.

Black Hornet Mine Cache

Hard, dry, ground, nearly bare hillsides, burnt vegetation, this is all a new experience for us. The cache hadn't been found for a long time, and had suffered in a fire last year or the year before.

Rothenburger Spitalhof

On our drive to Austria for ski-ing we paused in Rothenburg to find a TerraCache. The TerraCache was gone, but instead we found this lovely clean and tidy cache in a stunning location.

Carter Falls

Beautiful waterfall, but we were even more fascinated by a 4 mile long large wooden pipe that ran beside the trail some of the way - an industrial relic that was a work of art

The Highest Accessible Cache in Western Europe

A short spring break saw us at Brevent practising our off-piste ski-ing in preparation for the Vallee Blanche.

A glorious spring afternoon afforded amazing views of Chamonix directly below us.

Thingstätte

An awesome location that most people would not find without local knowledge. We were the only people here, in the early morning with the low winter sun, the silence contrasting with what it must have been like when in use.
