Earthcaches are geocaches that teach you about geology in the points of interest that you visit around you.
When in Tucson, I went to the “Leaning Towers of … Arizona” Earth cache which shows you the pinnacles that have been formed over millions of years from different types of minerals and the natural elements of water and wind.
To log the cache – you needed to ‘measure the verticality’ of the pinnacles. What does that mean? Not quite sure….but then the geocacher required you to make a plumb line….what? Here’s the description given…
So I rummaged the tourist backpack and came up with…a carbinger clip, a hairband, and a bottle of water….and put together this below….quite proud of myself – this Earth Cache made me work for it!
