About Me

My photo
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.

Can't mistake the fragrance of the Dame's Rocket

We visited a huge wetland near Wellsboro recently with the hopes of photographing some new species of ducks.  While that didn't seem to happen for us, we were treated to the fragrance of a large patch of nearby flowers.  These flowers are called Dame's Rocket and are one of my wife's favorite wild flowers.  They are often confused with Phlox but there is one major difference.  Phlox has 5 petals while the Dame's Rocket is always 4.  The smell of these small fragile flowers is something you will look forward to every year and means nicer weather is upon us.
