A little adventure in another part of the county

At the Park 'n Ride in La Mesa, I met CTYankee9 at 6:00 in the morning. I am not a morning person . . . that was about three hours earlier than I can usually function, but I really wanted to cache in a different part of the county, and CTYankee9 was driving.

We beat the traffic on the freeways and got to Escondido and SEPTICTANKHANK's house in good time. It was still overcast from a deep marine layer when we set out to find our first caches. The first couple were fairly easy, but then we attempted the waypoints for "Ding, Dong, the Witch is Dead," a Dan-Oh cache, and even though I had done this cache before, nearly two years ago, I was no help at all. I think we wasted almost an hour going on some wild-goose chases and ending up in wrong places, including one place where SEPTICTANKHANK found a bee hive.

We finally gave up on that and headed for one trailhead for the Daley Ranch. It started to clear up when we arrived at the parking lot, but it was still so hazy, I didn't take too many pictures during our six mile hike.

SEPTICTANKHANK placed one cache along the trail in a neat viewpoint area.

In another location, we saw several Western Fence Lizards and I got a picture of this guy showing his colors.

I also got a picture of this interesting flower.

We started back early to avoid the traffic on I-15 and 52, so I was able to get some shopping done before heading back up the hill. I really had a fun time and it was great to meet another cacher I had only communicated with through email before.
