Fiona Finds and Earthcache

90,000,000 years ago or maybe even more
A little scallop sat on an ancient sea floor
Happy as a clam, nestled in the mud below
Until the sediment settled over him and turn him into stone

And then the earth heaved and pushed him toward the sky
The rain and wind uncovered him and left him high and dry
Now that little scallop sits forever fossilized
Right there waiting for the curious to find

And who’s that coming up the trail below
A map in her hand adventure in her soul
Here she comes with a smile on her face
Fiona’s on her way!

To find an earthcache
If it can be found
You know that she’s gonna be there to have a look around
And find an earthcache
She’s up to the task
And it’ll be a day like none other in the past
When Fiona finds an earthcache

On the coast of Scotland, guarded by the sea
There’s a secret cave that very few have seen
Carved into the cliffs it holds a hidden jewel
In the dark at its very heart a crystal-clear pool

The undisturbed waters, glassy smooth perfection
Where only the courageous can see their own reflection
It hidden deep underneath the Isle of Sky
Right there waiting for the curious to find

And who’s that climbing through the dark below
A torch in her hand adventure in her soul
Here she comes with a smile on her face
Fiona’s on her way!

To find an earthcache
If it can be found
You know that she’s gonna be there to have a look around
And find an earthcache
She’s up to the task
And it’ll be a day like none other in the past
When Fiona finds an earthcache

Hiking through the forest, climbing the peaks
Trekking the glaciers, kayaking the seas
From the top of Kilimanjaro to caves underground
She’s gonna see this wide world twice around

In the hills of California there flows a little creek
An it spills over the hills at the falls of Nojoqui
Building out the sandstone with what it leaves behind
It’s right there waiting for the curious to find

And who’s that coming up the trail below
A purpose in her step adventure in her soul
Here she comes with a smile on her face
But as she rounds the bend, right in her way
Is a mountain lion between her and the cache
He won’t back down, she’ll have to turn back
But as she retreats, she yells back to the cat
“You win today, but I’ll be back!”

To find an earthcache
If it can be found
You know that she’s gonna be there to have a look around
And find an earthcache
She’s up to the task
And it’ll be a day like none other…

Earthcache
Everybody come along
We’re setting out today and it won’t be long
Until we find an earthcache
We’re up to the task
We’ll keep on exploring ‘til we find the spot at last
We’ll answer every question and you know that it’s a fact
And it’ll be an epic day like none other in the past
When we all find an earthcache!
