WIAN Series - Kingsford.

Beautiful Blue Sky

WIAN Series

18 + 4 caches on a 6½ mile circular walk.

The walk starts off in the car park of Kingsford Forest Park where there is ample parking and toilet facilities.  A very misty start to the morning but once we got going the sun soon came out and we enjoyed walking in the sunshine, a beautiful day to be out caching.

We'd heard some great things about this series so were really looking forward to it.  A lot of hard work has gone into setting it up with some extremely well crafted caches.  We haven't included any photos of the hides or containers as that would just spoil it for anyone that hasn't done it yet but safe to say you won't be disappointed.  All the caches were fairly easy to find, just the right level of difficulty.  If we had to pick one as our favourite it would be WIAN # 11 Danger Mouse, it has to be the perfect example of a cache hidden in full view but only visible to the trained eye - although we did give out a few favourite points on this series.

The footpath passes through Bodenham Arboretum, where there were lots of muggles visiting, we sat on one of the benches to eat our lunch in the warm sunshine, hard to believe it's mid-October.

Quite a long stretch of the walk at the end is along the road, it was fairly quiet so not a problem and all too soon the walk was at an end and we were back at the parking.

We completed the walk in about 3½ hours and this included stopping for lunch half way round.
