The Zen of Geocaching

Have you ever thought about the bigger picture of geocaching,its innate connection between humans and the outdoors,the way it draws us to parks and wooded areas or how it fulfills the basic human urge to walk? Neither had I until I read Why Geocaching Now,a research paper written by photographer Margot Anne Kelley more than three years ago that puts geocaching into kind of a Zen context. Kelley evidently wrOte this essay while working on her book Local Treasures:Geocaching across America.

I found it to be an intriguing look at how geocaching satisfies our innate need to connect with nature and with each other and how it is an example of technology actually enabling this connection. It’s 21 pages and you can download it for free.
