TC Trail @ Shawnigan Lake

On December 03, 2011 Just Leafy and I decided it would be a great idea to get out of the city for the day and go on a geocaching adventure.  Remembering that there was a large section of the Trans Canada Trail in Shawnigan Lake that was untouched by us, we figured that would be a great  place to go.

We arrived a little time before noon and parked the Jeep, and slinging our bags to our backs we started out.  I have to say, it was clod that day.  The puddles and little rain pools that scattered the trail were frozen with a thin layer of ice, and the frost never cleared that day at all.  But it was beautiful winters day out, with the sky so blue and not a cloud in the sky! 

The first find was right where we parked, a little too close to the port-a-pottie for my liking.  And with that first one out of the way it was on to the next. 
Around the time we made our third find of the day we met some other cachers.  We would have joined forces with them, but they never offered.  But we did not mind as we really did want a nice day out together.

It was find, after find, after find, until we got all of them up to the ones we started with months and months ago.  In total, from the parking to the last cache we walked 5.11km;  And then with the return trip having a total distance traveled on foot of 10.22km.  We found 20 caches total, and really boosted our numbers!

Thanks to everyone who placed all these wonderful caches, you help provide us with an amazing day and adventure!!!!
