Geocache Description:

This cache is a virtual cache as there is no caching in the park. And the nearest public lands are several miles away, too far in this area for a multi stage cache.

Fort Rock : The Plaque

Please take care of your dogs in this park; Please read the park rules sign; Please read the various kiosk boards before heading to the above posted location.

Bring a lunch and some water for your stay, enjoy a one of a kind feature to be seen nowhere else like it. If you come in the spring and summer, you will see various Species of Hawks, Falcons, Ravens and some Eagles in the air, nesting or sitting on the Rimrock.

Hike the trail around the inside of the Fort, being careful of not packing anything but trash back out. Bring your optic’s and sit on the North Rim and watch for Elk, Pronghorns, Mulies, Coyotes and lots of other critters roaming the Sage.

Now to claim this as a find, you will need to go to the posted cords and tell me how many plaques you find and what they are mounted on. Not the signs, there are bronze plaques to locate.

DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWER TO THE WEB. SEND THEM TO ME OR I WILL HAVE TO SEND YOU A NOTE AND HAVE YOU FIX IT.

For extra credit, tell me the what the person’s name is who donated this area to the people of the State of Oregon. If you get a chance, locate his book and read it, it will open your eyes to the life of the Oregon High Desert.
