Geocache Description:

Best to park @ the Carranza Memorial Parking Lot. Large lot with room for horse trailers.

The Cashe is now a 762 ammo can, a little more secure and some more room to grow. The contents are general stuff you might need when geocashing, batteries, cargo net, park maps for other geocashes etc. ALSO JAVA BEAR IS HITCH'IN from PA and needs a stop @ the Nearest Starbucks(tall order for the location). This could be a cashe and dash for the more experienced folks, but I gave it a 2.5. Not that it is hard to find or to get to, just that it is so remote. Plenty of game trails etc. to get to the cashe. Also bring Horses there were a few riding today .

Here is a link to the Memorial with an explaination of who Emilio Carranza was. Would like to dedicate this Cashe to my Dad, who instilled in me the sense of adventure and exploration.
