Avenging my summer DNF, I went for a run this morning (in the snow -- thanks, Minnesota! Oakland may have more hills, but it doesn't snow there). As I ran past GZ, I noted that all the recent frosts had thinned out the brush and thought I'd make a quick search. Sure enough, without all the tall grass and brush, the cache was sitting there plain as day. I didn't have a pen on me and the log is pretty full, but there was an unsharpened pencil in the cache and I managed to mark out a signature on the side of the log with that. Someone may want to come by with a new log soon. Thanks for the cache! Glad to turn the frown into a smiley here -- 20-30 years ago, these were my woods, full of adventure and lean-to forts.

I tried to place a new cache about 40 feet away. Of course, I was notified it was too close to this final. For some reason I thought it had been archived. I checked on it today and it wasn't where I found it so I retrieved my cache and decided to look again. Sure enough, it was on the ground. I replaced as I originally found it.

We are out in Quarry Park today on a cold crisp windy fall day. The colors are still good in the park and the sun is out making it seem a little warmer, then the high 30's and low 40"s. We tried to clear the park today. We missed only one cache that was out in a really wet zone today. We signed all logs and want to thank all the cache owners for there caches. We found 21 caches today with out a DNF. This was a really good day for us in the park.

Kim said "what about there". gallery    safechrisLaurie found it on 2018-10-15.
So happy when I can not only add photos to a cache page that doesn't have any, but also to make it lonely no more!

Last visit was 645 days ago...or exactly 1 year, 9 months, 7 days ago since the last visit.

Think it's because of the lack of trails? I think I eventually found the deer trail.

Think it was the creek crossing? There was a perfectly positioned log just for the crossing.

Think it was the mud? Yeah...got nothing for that one?

I can't be the view...it actually got kind of pretty back here! With the sun shining through the yellow leaves that were turning.

Loved your GZ choice. I think Kim made a good choice!

Speaking of Kim...I didn't look at the date of placement...but how it the world did you get her to go bushwhacking with you back here? Did you come all the way down from the suggested parking or just park alongside the street and pop in and out? It's such a underdeveloped park, I love the fact that she was out here with you placing caches!

Thanks for the adventure!

5th of 6 letterboxes found here along Point Douglas Road as I target letterboxes today.

Why did I not skip this one after reading the last searcher's log??? I bulldozed my way in to gz to find it, only to discover that I was covered in 100's of sharp little sticker burrs. It still took me 10 minutes to pick them all off, and I was wearing my nonstick nylon jacket and ripstop jeans which greatly reduced my efforts.

Had a bit of time so decided to work on a chunk of map in this area. Drove close to this one.. but water in the way... ok lets drive back this way and park somewhere on other side.

Tricky, was sitting in my semi nearby and saw a nice couple looking... Well... Is it weird that when I see someone looking suspiciously at something, I assume they are caching? Either way, I walked up and invaded their search and we all made the find, as well as met each other. Been awhile since I've been out Caching, and this was the kick in the pants I needed to start again. Thanks for the hide!

Back today for the final stage. With the recent snowfalls I wondered how long it would be before I can't navigate in on these roads. Better go for it today. The road was bad today. It was only half graded. Decided to head into this cache from the east. The walk would be shorter. I decided not to ride my bike today. With just over a tenth of a mile to bushwhack through slash I decided to try to avoid the downed wood and head for the standing trees. That was a poor choice. The uncut trees were were growing in a swamp. Cache was found and log signed. Now, I again have all the Esko caches in this state forest and off off Hwy 200 found. I'll see how long that lasts. Found another possible way to the cache on the way out. Checked it out and it didn't give a person any less slash to hike through. Thanks for another good woods hike and bike ride, Eskoclimber!

While driving from Davenport, IA up to St. Peter, MN today, we needed to stop to stretch our legs from time to time. Looking for this cache provided that exercise, so we took advantage of the opportunity!😉 We only had time for a few caches out the many to choose from in this big park. We hiked in to GZ and quickly found the dual beacon where our gps pointed to as GZ. Beautiful and quiet area in here! (Will send the CO a note.😊)
Thanks so much for placing this fun cache for everyone’s geocaching enjoyment and adventure! 😉👍🏼
