So, Karen and the kids have been geocaching for awhile now. We went with them one day just after we arrived in California. The city of La Mesa, where Karen lives, is celebrating their 100th birthday this summer and one of the activities is a geocaching challenge. Check it out here. La Mesa Geocache Challenge
Last stop was counting cement benches around the round cupula and subtract 1. 9 benches so the answer was 8. Can you see them off in the distance??
Ethan apparently is very good at spotting reptiles. He found this guy by the steps that we had just walked up. It went into the bushes but soon came back out probably hoping to cross to the other side, however when he saw us, he took off for the bushes again. He was very LONG!! I guess this is a California Whipsnake aka Striped Racer--non venomous thank goodness.
