Wylie's Angel

I like geocaching for lots of reasons. I like to be outside. I like discovering new places. I like walking and connecting with nature. But occasionally I learn something as well. Usually it’s just local historical trivia, or maybe a geography lesson. But sometimes the lesson is more personal, and as in this case, tragic.

The morning started out with a trip to the Trinity Trails in Wylie, Texas for some hiking and caching. We chose to start at the easternmost trailhead, which was also the closest to us.

There was a little marina at the trailhead.

To our surprise, there was also an artificial beach. The morning started off pleasant, then quickly warmed up.

Poor guy now has a horrible case of poison ivy. We must have passed through a particularly bad patch.

The geocaching was not as great as it looked on paper. Caches were too spread out and basically inaccessible due to the tall grass.
