Geocaching: A New Way to See the World

When my friends Angi and Cody invited me to their hometown of St. George, Utah and the nearby Snow Canyon State Park, I jumped at a chance to go hiking with two people who truly appreciate the outdoors.

On our way to the park though, we made a sudden stop. Why? There was a geocache nearby!

A lesson in geocaching

Angi explained that people hide little containers all over the world, associating the capsules with GPS coordinates and logging them onto websites like

The result is a worldwide treasure hunt with the bounty being the pleasure of logging one’s name with all of the other people who have discovered the cache.

For me, the treasure lies in seeing new places, nooks and crannies, neighborhoods, and parks that I never would have discovered without the fun of the search.

As soon as I got to a computer, I logged on as WanderWithLove and you can bet that I’ll be hunting down those caches and telling the story here!
