Welcome to the latest geocaching tool that we have added to our arsenal…Watson the geodog!

Dogs can be great as helpful geocaching tools because:

  1. They have great smell to sniff out the box underneath a rock
  2. They have great hearing to alert you when a muggle is coming around the corner
  3. They are man’s best friend so you can share in your delight when you find another geocache!

He’s only a puppy but as a terrier mix, he has bundles of energy and in 3 weeks we have yet to wear him out on a walk. So we decided to test his hiking and uphill skills out on Iron Mountain in San Diego.

This is a hike that many people take their dogs on, and indeed on Iron Mountain we saw over 30 dogs in 1 hour of all shapes and sizes. We asked if the little ones (dachshunds, yorkies…) had made it up and the owners all said “of course!!”

I ran the Iron Mountain Geocache Hall of Fame query and focused on the Iron Mountain side of the park…we managed to find 10 today including a puzzle (hooray for me and those Cryptogram puzzles). Congratulations to Watson the geodog on his first hike, completing 2 miles.
