Geo-caching is a game/sport where using GPS coordinates you search out these hidden boxes. They can be hidden anywhere; cities, parks, mountain tops, wilderness areas, war zones, you name it. It is a world-wide pastime with a website where you can gather information and share your experiences. I don't play it. I don't have a GPS. I doubt I could follow it's directions either. Inside the little box is a notebook so you can log in your GPS name and write a few words about your experience in locating the cache. People sometimes leave little trinkets in the box for others.
One day years ago, by pure dumb luck, I stumbled upon this one hidden in a clump of Redwood trees far from any established trail in my next door State Park. I've been up this way numerous times and you think I could find it again? Nope! I was really beginning to think someone swiped it. Ah but yesterday I looked some more and there it was hidden beneath a couple slabs of bark. The last entry was a week ago, and before that was a year ago. Not many come this way it seems.
And, the first of the wildflowers are starting to show in the park. I doubt they will do well. We are currently trapped beneath this dome of high pressure for weeks keeping any of the Pacific rain storms away. The last several days have been nothing but gusty high winds. Everything is so dry, even the air. It is so lacking in moisture (the air that is) the humidity level is barely at 20%, (normal should be twice that much) it feels like desert air. You feel it in your nose and throat. Not good.
