Albion Adventure: September 11, 2015

It was a gorgeous late summer/early fall day and Mary Ann and I decided to go geocaching. We headed towards Albion early this morning. The first cache we found was a huge one in the area of a former petting zoo/amusement park in Albion. CHRISTMAS PARK was open for twelve or thirteen years until l965. The geocache was NOT on the ground. I saw it first and then told Mary Ann that she needed to find it and then decide how to retrieve it.
Mary Ann DID find it and she DID retrieve it. It was HUGE. We couldn't get it back up as high as it originally was. And then we explored the old CHRISTMAS PARK, closed since l965. It used to be a petting zoo and amusement park. The rides must have been sold. Anyways here are some pictures:
Then we started to look for WAS LOST AND NOW IS FOUND...........a cemetery/memorial to the Orleans County Alms House. This took us all over the place, driving farmers lanes, until we finally found it.
We found four geocaches altogether: two phenomenal and two ordinary. Then we had lunch here:
We spent a bit of time in Mount Albion Cemetery, but did not have time to really spend looking for geocaches. my entire set of pictures can be seen at On the way home, we took a different route and stopped at Becker Farms for ice cream. It was a great day!!!
