- 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.

Life is full of surprises!
On a recent autumn day we were just wandering aimlessly and stumbled onto a cool little roadside wetland. We naturally had to stop and check it out and Whoda' Thunk there would be so many neat things to be seen. Okay, these things weren't amazing or earth shattering but cool nonetheless. Hope you like them too!
One might look at this image and wonder what the big deal is. At first glance you may be thinking this is simply a woodchuck but you would be wrong. This is a rare species called a Rockchuck. Very rare indeed!
Nothing more than a mere Garter Snake but it startled me when I nearly stepped on it. He responded by sticking his tongue out at me. I did the same and then snapped his picture.
When you initially look at these two images you see the ordinary male and female Mallard. We thought the same but as we looked through the field glasses we noticed a different color variation on one of the Male Mallards. In this same pond there was another Mallard that looked like a Bibbed Mallard but he was real shy about posing for the camera.
