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.

So who took the pot of gold?

Okay we didn't end up finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Truth is we probably didn't find it because we didn't find the end of the rainbow.  A rainbow is not a physical object and cannot be physically approached.  It's created by the rays of the sun illuminating droplets of moisture in the atmosphere.  If you are looking at a rainbow the sun will always be at your back.  Some believe that a rainbow is made up of 7 colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet).  Truth is the number of colors are countless ranging from red to violet and even beyond what the eye can see. 

Actually the rainbow is a full circle but you can't see it because the earth gets in the way.  The closer it is to sunset the more of the rainbow you will see.  If the sun is high in the sky you will see less of the rainbow.  Rainbows are just another awesome phenomenon  of nature.  This particular rainbow was photographed just a short distance from our home.
