Geocache Description:

!! Exciting New Cache Series!!


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 who 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 who places a CSQ cache is responsible for its maintenance.

If you are APPREHENSIVE about cemeteries – AVOID this series.

Bingham Hill Cemetery is located just outside of LaPorte along Bingham Hill Road. The Cemetery is open to the public during daylight hours and can be accessed by a footpath.

At the far western end of the cemetery is a monument listing all the people burried in the cemetery. Looking at the list, it is amazing to see how many were children.

No new burrials are permitted so as to preserve the historic nature of this cemetery. For more information about the cemetery, there is a book called Bingham Hill Cemetery by Rose L. Brinks.

The cache is not in the cemetery, but take the time to walk down the path and wander around. While there, gather all the information needed to complete Lest We Forget GCABC8, a virtual cache about the cemetery.

The cache is a small container with a log only. Bring a pen/pencil with you to sign the log.
