In the name of geocaching

We've hiked, biked, scrambled, and crawled in the interest of grabbing a geocache, but this was a first: tree climbing. Yesterday was a full day of caching around Hood River, Oregon, traveling the logging roads high in the hills above town, and south toward Mt. Hood. There's a whole series of caches here that is completely devoted to those folks who are tree-climbing kids at heart.

Grabbing a few of these was fun and a little bit nerve-wracking. But Dave was up to the challenge, as long as we could see the container before his feet left the ground, and it wasn't outrageously high up in the tree. This one was about 20 feet high, in a completely climbable pine tree. A couple of quick photos as proof, then he slid down, ready for the next cache.
