One of the wonderful things about geocaching is how it leads you to locations you may have otherwise never heard of. Case in point: GC1D4ZP.
Today’s Geocache of the Week takes us to a remote field in northeastern Finland. As you drive along Highway 5 and look to the east, you will discover an army of over 1000 scarecrows in a field. The peaceful mob is made of wooden crosses, decorated with straw hair and bright clothes, which are refreshed twice a year.
Magic: The Gathering is the first, and most popular trading card game of all time. To celebrate the release of a new card set, they’ve teamed up with geocaching to release thousands of trackables to geocachers and fans all over the world!

Corfu Island is located in the Ionian Sea on the northwest coast of Greece. This stunning area is known for its rugged coastline, remote beaches, idyllic villages, Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses, and Greek temples. It’s also known for a prized Multi-Cache.
“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.
