more than smilies, so I'll mostly go after the ones that are very
unique, very difficult or require lots of hiking through a gorgeous

rangers there even have their own caching team named "Warner Parks"
that hide great caches in the parks! We need to try to get the park
rangers in Austin hooked on caching also so they can start hiding
