About 20 people showed up Saturday for a new aspect of The Big Freeze — geocaching.
Steve Patten, the organizer for the activity, said most cachers were from Albert Lea, New Richland or Northwood, Iowa, with a few from the Twin Cities.
“Most people came and checked in, then went caching in town for the day,” he said.

Children who participated were part of a drawing. Alex Merritt won new walkie-talkies.
