Our Barcis Adventure, Part 2

The second geocache we hunted in the Barcis area was not quite as challenging, or at least not in the same way.  It did offer a very narrow path that was, on one side, a steep slope down the mountainside.

Again, we were glad Lucy was not with us--we also traveled smarter this time, leaving behind the unneccessary electronics.  We traveled along a path that was up from the river.  It offered the occasional pretty view, but mostly we had our eyes on the path.

We made our way around the manmade waterfall

And across some of God's waterfalls.

Eventually we descended to the river again, and began searching for the cache.  It took us quite a while to find this one--but Ted and Cory found it.
This giant boulder sliding into the water was cleverly hiding the cache.  There was a small opening through which you could crawl completely under the rock.

On the return trip we followed the high road for a while, but after the waterfall, we came down to the river...the narrow path was hot, buggy, and the grasses itched our ankle.  We were already wet, so walking through the river didn't seem so bad--although getting down the rocky slope was no easy task.

Riley was more prepared for water play on this hike than the previous...wardrobe changes make all the difference.
After that full day, we drove home, got Lucy from her friend's house, ordered pizzas and kicked up our feet, feeling very accomplished.
