Three separate visits to Abiqua Falls, three separate failures to find the geocache placed there!
First visit was a few years ago. The geocache was supposed to be an ammo can. Later I discovered it had been missing as confirmed by a previous finder. The following year it still hadn’t been replaced. Skunked again.

So here we are in spring 2015 and I find myself going down that familiar rough trail yet again. This time a new cache has been placed but it’s a micro. Once again I come away empty-handed. The clue was vague with many possible hiding locations. Very frustrating.
Despite the DNF, I had a nice time hanging out with Patricia and a photographer friend of hers for an hour or more at this very cool waterfall.
Well, the motorhome developed a leak in one of the slides so brought it back to Guaranty RV Center for fixing. It took quite awhile to finally locate the problem. I ended up staying in the motorhome two nights as they worked on it! What to do with my time? Geocache!
Packed up my trusty old Maxpedition sling pack with raingear, umbrella, gps, snacks and water and walked into town each morning for fun and adventure……in Junction City?
Found a great little hole-in-the-wall cafe for wifi, good coffee and breakfast – R & B Coffee.
Each day I put in around six miles of walking.
Eight Geocaches to be Found – Yep, cleaned ’em out!
We made a trek to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm near Woodburn so Patricia could get her annual tulip fields photo fix. We also took a day to visit waterfalls at Silver Creek State Park since we were close.
