Sometimes what you see isn’t what you get. According to the cache owner, the geocache “Totem Pole Rock” (GCGY8P) is really Gooney Bird Rock. Whether you call it Totem Pole or Gooney Bird, hcameron‘s hide has still been logged nearly 200 times.
The difficulty 1, terrain 1.5 geocache was placed in September of 2003. It has been found by geocachers from around the world. Adventurers simply drive outside of Moab, Utah to find the geocache. They should exercise some caution. As indicated by the vehicle in the picture above, four-wheel drive is recommended.
The desert in the Moab area is rich with scenic geocaches. A short drive away from “Totem Pole Rock” is “No Bull — Great Canyon” (GC12R1z). See the picture on the right.
As with any geocache in an extreme environment, take precautions. Make sure you pack plenty of water, a first aid kit and food. Geocachers, prepared with supplies, recently rescued two women who were stranded in the desert not far from these geocaches.
