Our "Trip of a Lifetime" - Part 1

As some of you may already know....

Nana & I took an amazing trip!!!

We flew to Seattle, spent a few days, and then
took a Carnival cruise to Alaska!!!

Our first view of Seattle
One of the first things we did upon arriving in Seattle was
to meet up with our geocaching friend Chihuahuak94me
and her muggle husband Michael.

The first cache on our Geocaching Agenda was the Ape cache!!!
Of course, we had to get there first!!!
Here is a list of the caches we found on August 1

Our caching group!
GC493V9 - Walk around the mall 4 - we had to out wait
several muggles before grabbing this one!

Never seen Alpacas listed on a trail sign???
GC2ATM6 - The Iron Horse Express - a quick grab
on the way to the APE cache.
