Pichincha Geocaching - First Find, the beginning of a new sport
June 2007 After a week of hard work in the communities, several members of the Sea Breeze Community Church, located in Pinellas Park, Florida and some local Ecuadorian friends all rode the lift up Pichincha Volcano for some fun time. While there we trekked across the paramo (high grass lands above the tree line) following my GPSr (Global Positioning System Receiver) to the coordinates of the geocache entitled, "Near the Sky". The coordinates were downloaded from the website: www.geocaching.com. You can learn all you need to know about this sport there. It's free and its fun. I was hooked from that moment on! Check out the pictures.
