Geocaching

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

Latest Geocaches Found

Here's some of the latest Arizona Geocaches we've found:

Francis Mountain Cache

Info:
You need a some-what raised 4-wheel drive to get up to the cache as there is a boulder at the beginning of the road and a few ruts on the way up, other wise, you have to walk to the cache. It's best to stay on the road if you're walking. Earl Francis died at this spot after a hard fight with the US government. Find out what the battle was about and how he died a tragic death from the cache and the site of it. Start at: N 32 34.952 W 110 44.331 The road will take you to Earl Francis' head stone on the left side of the road. If you miss the head stone, the cache has the coordinates in it on the back of the history page. Be careful due to sharp granite rocks, cat claw, and nasty critters that call the rocks their home!

Gimli's Favorite Jeep Trail

Info:
Small tin filled with awesome geocache stuff!!!! Congrat's to JiMari for FTF!!! Geocoins, new Geocaching T-Shirt, Geocaching Pencils, Gimli's Hoard Bumblebutton pin, AF patch added to the Hoard from Gimli to start out this cache!!! If you have a good map, tell me what the trail looks like to you!!!! The geocoins placed in cache all have specific goals.. Can you help them along?? GREAT!!!! THANKS AND HAPPY CACHING!!!

Off of Rt 83. Take Gardner Canyon Rd to Forest Rd 163 (1st right you come to)... past the Abbey to the fork that leads towards Kentucky Camp... take Forest Rd 4085 towards Gardner Canyon Rd. (this is a bumpy Jeep road, so I recommend you only go down it with a high clearance vehicle!!!) If you have a Jeep or 4X4... you can continue this Forest Rd all the way back to Gardner Canyon Rd... BEWARE!!! There is a fairly steep rock hill that your 4x4 will have to go over... Do-able, just be careful!!!... This is an AWSOME Road!!!
You can travel to the end of Gardner Canyon Rd to Forest Rd. 4084 to Forest Rd 4085 too... This way is easier because you just miss the vaunted boulder headwall, (well, cars can't make it!!!) AGAIN... ONLY COME THRU HERE WITH A 4x4 or HIGH clearance vehicle... Lots of campers and ATV's come here too...and illegals... YOU MAY SEE PRONGHORNS, DEER and other wonderful wildlife!!! Happy Trails!!! Take PIX!!!

First Snow on Colors

Info:
Greens Peak area, one hundred and seventeen charlie, high clearance helpful, 9035' Elev.
We were to meet our friends for a day in the colors of Fall but a little snow left us alone. SO we hid a cache. The colors were great and the cache location is just a great place to turn around before the road goes bad. Aspen and Spruce and Fir are all around, wildlife if you are quiet. Then it started snowing...WOW it is great to be alive
