Alabama State Parks Geocaching Challenge

Geocaching is an outdoor adventure game similar to a treasure hunt played with a GPS device that uses satellites to find the treasures. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, take a trinket from the cache, leave something of greater or equal value in return for the next person and then share your experiences online at geocaching.com. There are over a million active geocaches around the world and a few are now located in all of the State Parks of Alabama.

This cache is part of the Alabama State Parks Geocaching Challenge. The State of Alabama has 22 State Parks and each of these parks has a cache that is part of the Geocaching Challenge. Each of these caches are regular size caches with trade items and are design to be kid friendly as well as adult friendly.
