Christmas Geocache Still Active

Fire up those GPS’s and come out to Moreau to locate a holiday cache treasure! There are treasures for everyone, including those with four legs. Geocaching is a great way to combine STEM learning with the outdoors. It encourages young minds to integrate the natural world with the technical.  This years Christmas Geocache was placed by Mr. and Mrs. GeoSanta so come out and have some fun!!

Geocache Description:

Christmas Cache 2019

Its that time of year again and as I write this there is a brand new 8 inches of snow on the ground. Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. This cache is no ordinary cache. Its a large container filled with gifts all wrapped and labeled Junior Geocacher for the younger generation of geocacher, Senior Geocacher for those who don’t quite qualify for Junior and GeoPuppy for our 4 legged geocachers. You and everyone in your party, two legs or four, are welcome to choose one gift and leave nothing in its place. This cache is our gift to the geocaching community.

The photo above is of Annie finding last years Christmas Cache (thanks GPSBarb for uploading this great shot). While not required I thought it would be fun if in your “Found It” log everyone included a caption for the picture.

To access the cache, park in the parking lot for the Moreau State Park. I have included waypoint parking. Walk out the gate, across the road and behind the park sign to find the blue trail. This trail while not heavily used or well maintained will lead you close to the cache.
