Geo-CacheOur Mountain Manager, Sam Williams, has put together a Geo-Cache for Powderhorn!
"Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, first played in May 2000, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.
Don't know what a Geo-Cache is? Here is a Wikipedia definition:
A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, andwaymarking."
This Geo-Cache is a 4-stage Multi Cache that will take adventurers from Top to Bottom, East to West, on Powderhorn's Slopes!
To start, they need to find these coordinates: N39 04.006 W108 09.030.
Here is the first clue: Alongside Magic, you are in the trees. Keep an eye out for the “Sly Guy” on your right.
The following clues will be at the next caches. The first person to have completed this journey, and have the location of the final Cache verified by Sam Williams, will win a Prize!
Spread the word, and happy Geo-Caching!
