10/13 Tapo Canyon Curiousity

As I was scouting around for a new place to explore, I noticed that Tapo Canyon is rather sparsely populated with geocaches. I set out to find out why.

Swinging Bridge

My first stop was near this shopping center, which features a gorgeous fountain.

It’s a fountain on both sides!

I pulled up here to find the Swinging Bridge cache.

This is a mysterious looking gate.

There’s the bridge! Not many of these around:

The bridge looked a bit worse for wear, so I did not test it.

Maybe these guys should talk to the miners up the road?

The lovely canyon beckons, but the signs say no…. *sigh*
