Dalton, Georgia

We've stayed at this Comfort Inn before.  It is in a beautiful setting.  Nice view out of our window.

The blue dot is the back of my iPhone!

A couple of Wolverines on our way to our Florida condo for the winter spent the night in the motel down the hill. I needed to stretch my legs and saw there was a cache only 2 tenths of a mile away. A look at the climb or hike changed my mind so we drove up to find it on the way to dinner. Signed the log, managed to get it back in the container and returned it to its hiding spot. TFTC

A couple of Snowbirds fleeing the cold stopped for lunch on the trip south. After a fine meal, we checked for nearby caches and saw one within 100 feet of the car. Can't pass that up. Made the find, signed the log and replaced in its cool hiding spot. TFTC
