How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This should be easy to find. You can drive right to it.

This is a virtual cache. There is no cache container. The reward for finding it is a glimpse into the past and some quiet contemplation. Stop here and find out what famous settler and explorer groups passed this spot. Find out about the California Emigrant Trail and Hastings’ Cut-Off at this location.

No traveling in comfortable climate controlled vehicles with tunes and a “bag-o-burgers” in their lap for those folks! You may find yourself thinking, “Wow! Those people could have used some mapping software and a GPS!”

This is also the area that an interpretive center may be constructed in the near future.

***IMPORTANT*** To protect the integrity of our sport and prevent unscrupulous “find-logging,” you MUST post a picture with your log of yourself in front of the kiosk (or a picture of the GPS receiver you used to find it, sitting on the plaques at the cache site) to log this site as a “FIND.”

Most photo developing places have the option for including digital images on a floppy or CD-ROM with development. They offer various resolutions for use with the web or printing. Many film developing places and office supply/services stores also have the ability to scan photos and put them on disk for you or post them to a website where you can retrieve them. Most digital cameras have different resolution or quality settings for producing pictures for the web or printing.

If you’ve never posted a picture with a log, this will be a good new experience for you. You will be given the opportunity to upload your picture when you’re logged in and logging your find.

*Pictures must be less than 100kb or they will not upload. (320x240 pixels [3.2x 2.4 inches] @ 75 to 100 dpi works well for most pictures.)
