Geocache Description:

A quick cache & dash near the entrance to discovering the Anasazi, an ancient civilization. Large wayside parking area beside cache.
This is primarily a Post Card cache, take one - leave one. Please don’t take the case.

This 10”x6”x6” Loc-n-Loc started out with a bunch of post cards, a few Travel Bugs & a little swag plus a $2 bill for the First to Find. There’s even room for bigger Travel Bugs.

Please hide cache well as this is a heavily used area. Beware of muggles!
There’s lots of traffic. CITO would be appreciated.

Many of you have probably come to visit the Old Ones, it’s an awesome experience. You’ll love it!

Don’t miss these other caches along Highway 160: GC17CBW & GC13WXQ
There are more caches in the Cortez & Mancos area to find & enjoy.
