MOTHER NATURE'S PALETTE--
This terrific rainbow sparkled across Ontario, Ohio's late afternoon skies late yesterday afternoon; the northern half of its arc, (left) from our perspective, dancing on the roof of the Meijer store. A hint of a double rainbow is barely visible top right.
The aerial performance was viewed near the intersection of Lexington-Springmill and Walker Lake Roads.

GEOCACHE KAYAKING AT COWAN LAKE
Greg and Leslie (orange kayaks) prepare their lunch stop while Bill Niehoff heads for his shoreline lunch-munch mooring. We were about half-way through a string of 11 geocache hides, mostly in overhanging cedar trees, retrievable without leaving our spiffy little boats.
We wound up, on this near perfect summer day, with 100% success enjoying this aquatic geotrail which covered nearly 3 miles of shoreline on this southern Ohio state park lake.
The cache containers were mostly small, weatherproof tubes fastened to tree and brush branches with plastic wire ties. They all contained small, rolled-up logs on waterproof paper which we signed "K4" to prove our success.
Greg and Leslie are known by the caching name "GOC+me". Bill is "Lighthouse Nut" and I am "Skagway330". We shortened all that to the day's team name K4 (kayaks 4) to preserve space on the small logs.
