Over the past ten years, geocaching has continued to grow in popularity. The activity, which is described as a modern day treasure hunt, allows people to explore new places that would otherwise be overlooked, whether in their own city or another country. In today's Friday Feature, Jeff from British Columbia brings us on his geocaching adventure along the Trans Canada Trail.
Jeff begins, "The Trans Canada Trail is an ambitious project, linking each coast with a multi-use trail. What better way to spend a beautiful Sunday, than to take a trek on the TCT? The area in the Chilliwack River Valley of BC has some great scenery and would make a good field test for my new Montana 650.
"Many geocachers in the valley have placed caches all along the TCT, which gives even more incentive to hit the trails. Aug 7,2011 - 5 hours, 18km round trip, and 29 caches, I came across a beautiful hidden beach. What a great place to cool off after a long hike, and a great opportunity to try out the built in camera of the Montana 650. These photos were taken with the GPS."
