Wk 12-Art Experience-Location Based Gaming

For this week’s art experience, we used the Geocaching app to find a Geocache somewhere around our location. Luckily for me, there was one just a couple blocks down from where I lived. With the help of the map on the app and the hint telling me it was outside of the garden gates near some bushes, my sister and I were able to find it. We both had a fun time looking for it because it was like a little scavenger hunt trying to find the Geocache and it was hiding in a tricky spot in the bushes. After we found that one, my sister and I then got in my car and tried to find a place to hide my Geocache. It took us a little while, but we finally found a good place to put it. Overall, I had a fun time doing this art experience. Before this week, I had never heard of Geocaching before and now that I know what it is, it amazes me how all these Geocaches are placed everywhere throughout our communities. People probably walk by them all the time and if they do not have the app, they are missing out on finding some pretty cool items that are just waiting there to be found. Being introduced to this app has really shown me that there is so much more out there in the world and all those Geocaching experiences just waiting to happen is one example.

The coordinates for my Geocache are: 33° 51’1″ N and 118° 1’16” W
