GC751AJ. My 100th cache found! Yay! I actually did this on December 30th but haven’t kept up on my posts. Was a tad busy at the end of December but I still found time to go geocaching! Tammy convinced me because I was so close to 100!

I love geocaches near art. A lot of times they are near one that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. This one is out on Houghton and I don’t come out here much — well, lately tammy_b and I have been coming out here because people have been popping up a whole bunch of new caches out here.

“Cocoon is a sculpture that is meant to be experienced, not just observed. We would like you to feel a sense of rebirth and transformation as you leave the open landscape, move through the cocoon and emerge at the other end.”

As you walk through it, Tucson’s northern moutains are framed by the entrance. Pretty cool, right?

    Great photos of this art! I have seen lots of metal art around Oro Valley and Tucson but this is one of my favorites. Glad it was your 100th!
