Ashley and I placed "Holly's WS Geocoin #1" off one of the trails at Grandfather Mountain, NC yesterday! It was SO much fun! I put the geocoin in a ziplock bag with a small notepad, pencil, and pencil sharpener. Then I put the ziplock bag in a clear, square, sandwich sized Tupperware container with "www.geocaching.com
" written on the top of it. Happy hunting!

Here are some pics from our day on Grandfather Mountain!
It was VERY foggy on the way up to the mountains.
The sun came out briefly and burned off most of the fog, then it got cold and windy and very overcast!
Here's Ashley, bundled up against the cold!
And here's me, standing on the very edge of the cliff, just to scare myself and Ashley. LOL!
We went halfway down Grandfather Mountain to the 2nd parking lot where the trailheads start. Here is Ashley, standing near our "jumping off point" for hiding the geocoin. My car is located at:
Elevation: 5008 feet

A cool vein of quartz I saw in some granite
Some of the rocks we had to navigate around on the trail

There it is!
