Take Time to Smell the Pine Cones

I ran out Saturday morning for a little photo excursion with a buddy of mine in Carleton, Michigan. This was to be a short trip though as we were only planning to be out till about noon when Drie was scheduled to be off from work. All the same, I decided to load up the Oregon 300 with the "Caches Along a Route" for the trip. After shooting a couple of trains and the exterior of the old lumber yard, we walked over to a nearby cache - "One Degree of Separation: Heidi" (GC11D6Y) - in search of photos and the log to sign. The cache was a really easy hide, but the Geomuggles had us pounding the pine trees with the cameras. It reminded me though that sometimes its a blast to just spend some time with a macro lens poking around the cache site. If you have the chance, spend some time at the next few caches you visit looking for the subtle details and switch your camera into its macro mode (usually a tulip or flower icon) and see what you discover. Its an interesting aspect to add to your caching.
