Interested in Geocaching? Great fun, great friends, good exercise. Let's get together and go for some caches! Bring a sack lunch/snacks and we'll take a break from hiking and caching to eat and if we're at it long enough we can all head to lunch afterward.

**Bear Creek Park** is the first of what we hope are many such outings. The park is off Highway 6 in west Houston 2 miles north of I-10 at Clay Road.

Let's meet at the equestrian and nature trail head parking area on Bear Creek Drive.

In addition to a sack lunch, bring your:

• GPS or phone with geocaching app

• A pen

• Plenty of water, Gatorade or electrolyte powder

• Sunscreen, and bug spray. (Sunglasses, hats, hiking sticks...whatever else you prefer).

WARNING: Wear long pants, good walking shoes, and a long sleeve shirt (layer with a T shirt if desired). We will leave the trail and detour into the woods so be prepared to "bushwack".

Bear Creek is a reservoir so be prepared - it could be wet and there are snakes and other wild animals in the area.
