I've been trying to hike around Mt. Tam (all the way around)
 and was exploring the area between Lake Phoenix and
Baltimore Canyon. This area is so beautiful!
 I did feel like I could touch Mt. Tam! I saw so many Iris'
and heard lots of birds and the forest was ticking and
syncopating. I picked up this bug (pig) and took another because
the cache hadn't been found in a while. I'll bring it on my travels,
or leave it in a cache that perhaps gets more visits
 to continue its adventure :)"

"
T Rex was apparently attacked by a larger predator.
 His tail has been chewed, but I think we can fix it!"
"Following successful reconstructive surgery,

Rex is recovering quickly and will soon be
released to the wild. Rex lost his tail during an
attack by a large predator who remains at large.
Rex expressed appreciation to the skillful
surgeons who reconstructed his tail in a first
of its kind operation."

"From logs to the cache where your trackable item was last seen it appears that the item is now missing. If the item happens to return (or at any time for that matter), you can grab it back to your account. In the meantime, I am marking it missing to move it from the cache’s inventory."

washed away
The whole cache was missing
and had to be replaced.
The owner said "Blame it on Mother Nature ...
we had about 9" of rain here in 2 days
 and the river got higher than I've ever seen it.
 If it took out the entire container, it's
 possible it could be found by someone.
If it continued downriver, perhaps
 Waddles jumped out when he/she
 got to Potter Park Zoo."
