Swans of Lonesome Lake: [?] . You might remember a book called "The Caruso of Lonesome Lake" where Ralph Edwards saved the BC Trumpeter swans from extinction from the 1920's to the 1950s. It was almost required reading for our generation in elementry school in the 70s. Edwards cabin burnt down in the BC fires of 2004. [M | C]

I received this email from Luvsgarb and thought I'd post it here.
How fun is this!? It took a bit of "getting off the couch" (one of my favorite parts of this new sport) but there it is... number 100. Small potatos for some but I thought it was a pretty big deal for me. Where to go for the big 100? Hey, the Spotted Lake in Osoyoos has a cache? Perfect!... Down for Maintenance? No:( It will be back up again by the time we get there (I hope).
This is our 10th year vacationing with the family and friends in Osoyoos. Every year the "Are we there yet?" questions from the kids that don't stop until we get to the Spotted Lake. Then we can finally say "Yes!" This spot (no pun intended) holds a special place in my heart. Although it was still "down for maintenance" we went, took a photo, pretended it was my 100th find, then drove down the road to "Paws here for a Cache" to actually find my 100th. We took in the magnificant view over-looking Osoyoos Lake and enjoyed the breathtaking sights of Canada's only true desert. (another one of my favorite parts of this sport).
And the icing on the cake was camping with my cousin and her family (that I haven't seen for years) and it seems they may now be the latest convers to the sport. (Thanks bish0p & Family for your FTK series).
Thanks to my hubby and kids and everyone who lets me drag them out for "an evening stroll"... it's been a sweet time...#100.
