Geocache Description:


 

!! Exciting New Cache Series !!

 

“COLORADO SPIRIT QUEST”

 

The Colorado Spirit Quest is a series of Caches placed by many individuals near cemeteries and historic sites in hopes to pay respect the many pioneer ancestors that ‘walked’ before us.

 

There are numerous hundreds of cemeteries in the rural and mountain communities across Colorado.  This series will introduce you to many of them.

 

The cache pages will provide a virtual history tour of the cemeteries and tombstones.

COLORADO SPIRIT QUEST is not afflicted with any other Spirit Quest group.  Special thanks and credit is given to SixDogTeam who started the Indiana Spirit Quest in 2004. The idea has rapidly spread into many states.

The CSQ endeavor is an enormous and relentless task.  It can not be accomplished by just one or two people.  This projects will only flourish if there is a multitude of volunteer cachers  willing to place caches. 

After locating the cache container, take some time to reflect back on the lives of these pioneers and the effort it took to make Colorado a great state.

If you are interested in joining the “Walking Through History Clan” contact may be made by sending an e-mail to the owner of “Colorado Spirit Quest #1 – The Passage through the Mountains”.  Use the ‘Send Message” link at the center of the page of their profile.

Each person that places a cache will be reasonable for the maintenance of such.

 

REMEMBER:

If you are APPREHENSIVE about cemeteries – AVOID this series.

I found the grave of a nun, Sister May Huggins who died in 1901.

If you walk to the far side of the cemetery you will find two old handmade stone markers that still have the wood from the cement form on the marker - this gives the effect of a wood inlay.

The oldest grave I found was from Alice Davison who died in 1896.

Cache is a film cannister hidden outside of the cemetery
