First geocache attempt

I always enjoyed the premise of geocaching, and did a few "look and see" stuff with the website last week. This afternoon, I finally signed up, and looked up the closest simple cache to my home. I stopped at the little city park it's in, on my way home, and hiked down the trail until my GPS said I was standing right on top of it.

Unfortunately, a circle 23ft in diameter is still pretty large to search for something hidden down in the brush in the bog of the waterline, in the dimmness of twilight. So I didn't find it. I will go back, when sunlight is on my side.
