Geocache Description:

Cowboy and Shane were driving a herd of cattle north up Cherry Creek Valley a few miles east of Mancos, Colorado. The trip had been long but uneventful, nevertheless, both cowboys were tired to the bone when they arrived at the Mancos stockyards. Just as they put up the last cow and were ready to look for a place to find a good meal, a hot bath and a comfortable bed, George Bauer spied the two cowboys.

"Shane", he called out, "What are you doing in town?"  Shane explained they were moving cows from Cherry Creek Valley to Dove Creek and resting the herd overnight.  George said, "Then you will be staying the night with me at the Bauer House."  A big smile came to Shane's face as Shane recalled how he had doctored George's lead mule a few years back when the mule had run a stick into it's leg.  Shane removed the stick, stitched up the wound and applied a poultice of medicinal plants.  He learned the formula from the southern Utes a few years back.  Cowboy and Shane agreed to spend the night with George but first they were headed to the Millwood Junction for a nice meal of steak, beans, and fresh bread.  George warned the cowboys not to trespass across the land now occupied by the Zumans.  He told them that they are fierce, unfriendly pack of settlers who didn't much care for man nor beast.  The cache is a black camo bottle with a log.  Bring your TOT to extract the log and a pen or pencil.
