Geocaching in Tucson: Critter Cache

Ok, I was going to do some chores but then Tammy calls. You want to go out caching? Sure.

Three hours later, I’ve scrambled under barbed wire fences, pulled out thorns as tough as nails and dodged piles of cow manure dropped randomly in the desert. What the heck were cows doing out here?

I’m exhausted but happy.  The route we took through the desert was a desert critter loop created by TuffAZNaylz. They are a husband and wife team who create these awesome creatures to hold their caches. Do you see the praying mantis?

Plus some of the critters were big enough that I could drop the trackables I had picked up the other night to send them on their journey.  So over the next few days I’ll show you this loop and the different critters.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
