The kids of DuckTales are back in town and on an adventure of a lifetime. Will you help Huey the “The Explorer”, Dewey the “The Adventurer”, Louie the “The Charmer” and Webby the “The Warrior” discover hidden treasure?
Kids Shouldn’t Have ALL the Fun
Ever dreamed about finding hidden treasure that leads you to delicious and healthy food? It’s safe to say that most of us gave up on those ideas some time around adolescence. Halo Top and Geocaching think that’s a shame, so we’ve partnered up to give people back just a little bit of that childlike wonder.

“The Last Frontier”, “The 49th State”, “The Land of the Midnight Sun”…
Alaska is called all these things, especially in the summer when the sun may not set. This is the best time of year to go visit Denali National Park, where your chances of viewing North America’s highest peak are stronger.
N 00° 00.000′ W 078° 10.500′ —
Aptly named, Ecuador straddles the equator where the southern and northern hemispheres meet. Exactly at latitude N 00° 00.000′, the Quitsato Sundial was the first monument of the Equator in the history of the Republic of Ecuador.
The location features a 54 meter diameter platform embellished with a mosaic of river stones. The different shades of rock create an eight-pointed star, also known as a compass rose that indicates solstices and equinoxes.
At the center of the platform stands a giant 10-meter high sundial that can be used to tell time. This platform is also used to explain the albedo effect when the darker stones create higher temperatures from the absorption of sunlight. The cache takes you to a viewpoint to relax and absorb all this celestial knowledge.
