Caching in the Pontiac

Today I emerged from my winter hibernation to go geocaching with the Ottawa geomob. Today’s excursion brought us north-west, into the Pontiac region of Quebec. It was a ten cache day, involving a challenging hike (8km or so, over hilly terrain) in Gatineau Park for three of those caches. The other seven were easier to get to. I don’t get to go out with the geomob that often – only on days when my neighbour graciously takes my son for the day – so I cherish these outings.

And we needed it, we rested. A great day with friends.
