About Me

We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Whoda' thought nature was so crafty!

Here's something that you just have to look at and say, "whoda' thunk"!  And whoda' thunk this is probably a mere 6 miles from our house.  Nature sure can be crafty and artistic.  This formation is known as Umbrella Rock but I think it looks more like a Golden Eagle perched on the edge of a cliff.  Since there is nothing in front of it to give it scale, it is difficult to decipher the size.  Trust us when we say it is large.  It's called Umbrella Rock because you can easily stand under the overhangs to get shelter from the rain.  This is a a wonder of nature that can best be appreciated by standing before it instead of looking at a picture of it.  You will surely stand in awe and mutter these words...Whoda' Thunk"!!

I'm going to be guiding a small group on a hike through this area next week. Specifically, we are coming in from Hearts Content, looping the Minister Creek area and then on the NCT to Dunham Siding. By any remote chance is this rock easily seen from the trail? Or, do you have gps info for it? I would love to take them to it. Thanks for the post!
