Geocaching in Paris Landing, Tn.

The other day we decided to drive down to Paris Landing State Park in Tennessee.  Some upcoming fishing tournaments are taking place out of there, and Louie wanted to see how far of a drive it was.  Never one to miss an opportunity to geocache, I grabbed my caching bag and we did a couple of geocaches along the way.
If you're new to my blog and don't know what geocaching is, visit this link for more information on my fun hobby.

Here we were at the Kentucky/Tennessee state line.....

At the Paris Landing Marina we stopped to do a cache at the Scott Fitzhugh Memorial Bridge.  The cache was a quick find and placed somewhere on the bridge...

The location was pretty and even Snoopy had to have his picture taken....

After a quick tour of the marina we headed to Paris, Tennessee in search of the Eiffel Tower....

While there we were able to complete a "challenge" cache.  Challenge caches are relatively new to geocaching.  If you're a premium member, you can issue a challenge to other geocachers for them to complete.  In this case the challenge was to find the replica of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Tn. and upload a photo of yourself in front of it.  Challenge extended, we accepted it and then completed it!

We've only done 4 challenge caches so far.  I wanted to do this one because we had to find the Eiffel Tower. The nice thing about this challenge was that it brought us to a place we would probably never have gone to otherwise.  After all, how many times in my life can I honestly say I've visited the Eiffel Tower??

Today I am linking up with Sunny Simple Life.  Stop by and check out the fun blogs!


  1. Thanks so much for sharing your good time.
    Love that Eiffel Tower. :)

  2. Your family is just too darn fun. I love all the outdoor things you do. Have a wonderful father's day and that is cool that there is an Eiffel tower there. I have seen the one in Las Vegas.

  3. I didn't know there was an Eiffel tower in Tennessee! Now I do! :) Happy Sunday to you.

    1. See why I like geocaching so much? I would have never heard about that any other way, I'm sure.

  4. Hmmm... I'm actually not sure how many times I've seen THE Eiffel Tower! I think I've been up it at least 3 times, maybe 4... and seen it another bunch of times! ;o)

    Ok, maybe I should stop showing off now! :p

    I think those Challenges sound really cool! And I love the idea of there being an Eiffel Tower in another "Paris"! :o)

    I think you've mentioned your "geocaching bag" before, care to do a post on what you've got in it and why? I'm curious! ;o)

    1. Cris: You know how jealous I am of all the wonderful places you've been able to visit! LOL. And I have actually done a caching bag post, go check it out:
      You've been a busy girl today catching up on my blog. Hugs!
