Geocaching in Bourbon County, KY
Having recently read Cindy Edwards' blog about
I was, fortunately, well aware of what exactly I was looking at this afternoon.
I took a little by-way side trip today, on my way home from a Carlisle Kentucky area home inspection, to see an old covered bridge I hadn't see before (though I'd passed the directional sign many times.
Kentucky's Disappearing Covered Bridges is the blog I wrote about the Colville Covered Bridge.
However, while poking around the bridge looking at it's architecture, I saw something a ways away that just didn't fit in. See the little white spot at the bottom of the arrow.
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back. So I walked up a little closer to look at it and found a fresh pine board with this sign on it.
I looked over the top of the railing and saw this:
So I opened the box, pawed through the stuff that was in there: several pens, the log book, some hard candy, a business card or two, and what appeared to be a hash pipe!
I snapped a picture of the inside of the box, signed the log book, took a piece of candy (Don't know if I'll eat it or not but hey), left several business cards, closed the box and went my merry way.
Unfortunately, the picture of the inside of the box just didn't turn out, (dark and blurry, dang it).
An interesting By Way for the Day!
