Today my little one and I visited our first park- James H. Sloppy Floyd State Park. It was close to home and we were already familiar with the area. We picked up our passports at the park office. (Passports have the "rules", participating parks list, and a grid. Each time you locate a cache, you find the stamp inside and stamp your grid. Each time you get 15, you get a geo coin. Caches can have cool stuff inside them, too. See the website).
After a picnic, we headed out. OK, mom is not great with the GPS...but after walking in circles for a while (ahem) we headed in the right direction. It was a beautiful day. I took a couple pics of the trail as we hiked through the woods.
Being a little (ha!) inexperienced, I can't say it was an easy find for us, but boy, was it fun when we found it!
