I’ve found over 50 geocaches now. I enjoy taking walks, and geocaching gave direction to those walks. But now it’s time to retire this hobby and do more running and tennis. And with that, here are the most recent finds.
In Pioneer Square, in between buildings, there is a waterfall garden park to honor Seattle as the birthplace of the UPS. I found this magnetic tin on the outer gate.
Near CenturyLink field, a magnetic key case geocache was placed under the metal divider.
By the Sheraton in downtown Seattle, there is a sculpture called Urban Garden. There’s a giant watering tin that pours water over the sculpture’s flowers. While searching for the geocache, I got rained on by the watering tin. There is a glass panel in the flower pot of the sculpture that lets you see into the sculpture. You can see the computer that controls the sculpture’s movements. It turned out that the geocache was on a nearby parking sign.
While waiting for brunch, I found this geocache under a sign for a Mexican restaurant in Kirkland.
By the Microsoft campus, there is a trail through the wetlands. There is an amphitheater in the middle of the wetlands, a bunch of wooden benches by the water. There is a geocache underneath one of the informational signs.
Along the 520 bike trail, under a random pine three, a tupperware geocache was hidden.
In Mercerdale Park on Mercer Island, there is a geocache hidden under one of the grates.
There was a geocache hidden at Roanoke Landing on Mercer Island, essentially a small road that leads to private driveways.
To the left, there are shrubs where the geocache is hidden.
The geocache was a container with an X on top.
In Robert E. McCormick Park in Bellevue, there is a tupperware geocache next to a tree.
In a neighborhood in Factoria, in a forest, there is a tree with a geocache hidden under the plant debris.
Also in that neighborhood, there was a beer bottle geocache hidden in a pine tree. To add camouflage, pine leaves were taped to the bottle.
My final contribution is a geocache full of knickknacks I’ve accumulated over the years. The trinkets serve no pragmatic purpose to me, but I’m sure a child would be happy to get a Batgirl toy or My Little Pony.
This is not the end of geocaching for me. In the future, I’m sure I will be stuck in some mall or neighborhood against my will, and then I will whip out my phone and start hunting.
