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 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.



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 – Mountain
Passage”.  Use the ‘Send Message” link at the center of the page of their
profile.





Each person that places a CSQ cache is responsible for its maintenance.




REMEMBER:



If
you are APPREHENSIVE about cemeteries – AVOID this series.

The Fairplay Cemetery has a really marvelous view of the mountains that surround the city. The cemetery is quite large and was established in 1863. The new sign was a replacement for the old sign which is still present and can be seen when you drive in.

The cache is located along the main road through the cemetery. Look at the base of a fallen aspen.

Bring your own pen
