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.

A new life begins in the forest.

This is the time of the year that the forest welcomes the birth of tiny fawns.  There isn't a cuter critter than a little newborn fawn.  Just recently we pedaled our bikes down through the Grand Canyon of Pa on a beautiful 90 degree day.  As we rounded a corner we looked ahead and noticed what appeared to be a thin little dog drinking out of a puddle.  As we got closer we realized this was a tiny newborn fawn that was still quite wobbly on his new little legs.  Once he spotted us he tried to hide right next to the trail in the tall grass.  We didn't want to scare him and cause him to run into the nearby raging Pine Creek as that would mean instant tragedy for this little fella.  We did manage to get a couple pictures of him and then continued on our way.  Hopefully he reunited with his mommy as that is very important for his survival at this critical time in his young life.  This was certainly a treat though!
