I can’t believe it’s really been almost two years since I went geocaching. I came to that depressing conclusion today as I finally took the time to use the geocaching app on my android phone. After finishing up at a client’s facility today and enjoying a few minutes ride it occurred to me that I should pull over and see what caches might be in the area.
After a few minutes of looking through the list, I found the BCTC Port Union cache and thought it would be a good one, like many of their others I’d done. So, plan established, I headed toward the area of the now long gone Port Union Cafe. Turns out, this is now the Trinity Pub. Looked like a nice place. I didn’t visit.
After a short walk up the trail I found the spot after crossing a creek bridge. On the bridge, looking south, you can see evidence of a large “water related” concrete structure. Considering this trail is built on the towpath for the Miami – Erie canal, I can’t help but wonder if the structures I could see were the remains of a lock. Might have to do some research.
Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t find the cache. I suspect it is gone. There was obvious evidence of 2-3 ft deep flooding in the area of the cache, and I even found a mass of camo tape that probably was around the cache container based on the previous logs for the cache.
Oh well. It was a nice walk down the trail anyway! Here’s a couple pictures:[Not a valid template]
