At least it wasn't bees...

So, back in August, I blogged about our run in with bees while out geocaching. We haven't done much caching since then. Partly because of the bees, partly because life got really busy.
Since the temperature got up to zero today, we decided it would be a good day to finally get back into it.
So, the first cache was great. It's on an island in the middle of the lake. Since it's winter, the lake is frozen over, so we drove right to it. The next two caches were just as fun.
Then we get to what will be our fourth cache of the day. I don't really care for the location, we had to walk 500 feet along a very busy highway, trudging through the snow. We are right on the bank of Wasilla Lake, a few feet from the outflow. Because the outflow is squeezed through a culvert under the highway, the faster moving water doesn't freeze. I figured we were far enough away, that we'd be okay.
The good news is the water was only a few feet deep. The bad news is it was below zero out, and we were separated from the truck by 500 feet of snow.
In reality though, having all ten toes is overrated...
