A great hide in a great park! I can remember when there were more buildings here from when I was a kid.

This was our forth of seven caches today. We had to spend some time finding a way into the area in question. Very thick stuff this time of year. Once we got there, we worked our way around the bend and made our way down the valley. Finally!!! Bearcub traded a spider for a yo-yo. However, before putting the spider in the cachebox, Bearcub put the spider on my head as I was logging the cache and decided to snap a few pics. Ha-ha. Was a nice hide.

When I reached the spot to to go get this cache, the Rangers showed up. They ask if I was hunting I said, "no geocaching." They said "oh, we remember you guys from the Geo weekend you had last summer." They said, make sure you wear orange! The cache was in a very nice spot. I took the Spiderman action figure. I left a Yellow protractor, globe key chain, Cache In/Trash Out bag and the travel bug Soaring Eagle.

Our 2nd find today; we're camping here and were happy to find so many caches hidden in the park. Left mom and 2 yr. old on the other side of the creek. Took scissors and toy car; left a toy action figure and a 3' tape measure.

Found this one this morning in the middle of a thunderstorm. Figured it couldn't be any more dangerous than caching in the dark, right? What a nice spot! TNLN, biked on to The Crow's Nest.

This was the 6th and last Sampson State Park cache we found today. We found the trail, which made for a nice easy hike to the cache and had no trouble finding it. Signed log, TN/LN. Thanks Linda and Dave for a real enjoyable day of caching in the park. Looking forward to the picnic here in August.
