!! 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 of paying respect to the many pioneer ancestors that have ‘walked’ before us.
There are 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 affiliated with any other ‘Spirit Quest’ group. Special thanks and credit are 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 cannot be accomplished by just one or two people. This project will only flourish if there is a multitude of volunteer cachers willing to place these caches.
After locating the cache container, take some time to reflect back on the lives of those pioneers and the effort it took to make Colorado such a great state.

While searching for cemeteries on topo maps, I came across this location. It is located on private property and appears to be a family cemetery rather than a community cemetery. I have placed the cache on the public right of way where you can see the cemetery up on the hill to the north.

Parking is on the shoulder of Hwy 285. Do not park in the access road to the private property. If you have kids or dogs with you, please be mindful and watch them near where you park. The cache is not in the immediate vicinity of the road so they should be ok there.
