Esther Lopez started caching in “The Valley” of Southern Texas in 2006. She became active in hiding caches and helping others learn how to geocache. She then moved to Hutto (near Austin) to be closer to her daughter and grandkids. She also became an avid hider of geocaches with over 1,000 hides, over 8,700 finds, and has taught hundreds along the way. She smiles as she shows off her latest creative geocache before she hides it for you to find. If you haven’t met her, you haven’t been to an event with her. She’s one of the most social, friendly, people on the planet. If you find a cache at an HEB or a Whataburger, there is a good chance she hid it.
