The kids and I were not wanting to sit in the house today so we went and did a little dirt road traveling and some geocaching along the way.

Went by Summer Falls

Went out by where the two siphon's come from Banks Lake to fill the irrigation canals and then Moses Lake. In this pic you can see the two bridge's going over the two siphon's.

I explained geochaching to my daughter and she thought it sounded like fun. But before we had a chance to go out, my GPS died. I've get to get another one soon!

Did not know that. I even got GPS on my phone but I still rely on my internal compass to get me lost. :laughing6:
