Santa Fe National Historic Trail GeoTour (GT34)

 

Giddy-up geocachers, a new journey awaits!

From 1821 to 1880, traders hauled manufactured goods from Missouri all the way to Santa Fe. There they traded these goods for silver coins, pelts, and mules. Known as the Santa Fe Trail, this trek spanned five states and nearly 900 miles (1,400 km) of challenging terrain—the early pioneers sure didn’t have it easy.

You too can walk the Santa Fe Trail—luckily for you, there are now paved roads, National Park Service historical markers, over 1000 Favorite points, and 73 geocaches to discover, and on the Santa Fe National Historic Trail GeoTour!

You’ll crow for joy when you find GC4YXVK, right in the middle of historical Santa Fe! Photo by Love

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Many geocachers love to explore the world, plan ahead, and achieve caching goals. One of the more common questions we get asked is “When is [insert recurring geocaching moment] this year?” This year, we’re letting people know the dates for annual events, well ahead of time. So cachers, this may be the year that you finally decide to attend an Event Cache or even, *GASP!* host your own!

Additionally, we will run several promotions in the coming year (similar to Planetary Pursuit and Hidden Creatures) that we’re not quite ready to announce yet. Make sure to follow the Geocaching blog, Facebook, Twitter, and newsletter (sign up here) for more information as we roll out those geo-moments.

The confirmed souvenir moments for 2019 are: Continue reading →
