You have come to Colorado to Pan for Gold. In 1858 gold was being panned in Denver. In this story, you will pan for gold in Colorado Springs.
You will start out at the Cottonwood Creek Trail just East of Union and South of Woodland Hills Drive.
This Wherigo Cartridge will probably take you at least 15 minutes, and maybe 30 minutes. You will cover between 1/4 and 1/2 miles linear distance and there is a moderate incline for part of it.
While you might be able to do this in the dark, it is inadvisable.
Please watch out for the left-behinds of careless dog walkers along the trail.
You do not have to go down to the stream.
When you are playing the cartridge, you should be able to view the current Task or Tasks on the Game's menu to find out what you need to do next.
During the story, you will pan for gold in a few places. It will take panning quite a few times to get enough gold to move on the the next part of the story. Once you have sold the gold, you will be given the way to complete the cartridge and find the physical cache to sign the paper log. Signing the log on 'Shark Attack' does not count as a find for this cache. The container is a bigger micro.
You will need to save the cartridge and upload your save file to Wherigo to be able to claim this cache.
Upload your Wherigo completion and log on the Wherigo cartridge page before you log this cache page!
On Garmin Colorado, you need to upload from (drive:)\Wherigo\Saves\pikes_peak_gold_ru.gws
