Geocache Description:


The stash is located approximately 250 yards from a 2x4 accessible road (except when covered in heavy snow). Cache contains a wildlife book, portable alarm clock, post card, small stuffed panda, pin and ceramic vase. If there is a theme for this stash, I guess it would be “The Deseret Special.” All trade items were picked up at the Deseret Industries. For you non-locals, Deseret Industries is similar to Goodwill Industries. There is also a disposable camera, take a picture or two and please return it to the cache.

Down the road about a mile to the west are Indian petroglyphs. Well worth the look.

7/28/01 Well, I just got back from a week of Geocaching. Once again it's funny to see the different ways that people interpret the star system for terrain. So I thought that I would add this to each of my geocache sites for clarification. So here's "MAGNUM'S INTERPRETATION" of the terrain coding. I hope that it helps in your planning the trip. (I.E. Do I leave the wife/husband and younger kids at home on this one.)

One star> If you can handle a Walmart Superstore, you can handle this one.

Two star> Minor elevation changes, some uneven terrain. But if you take your time, you shouldn't be out of breath.

Three star> Significant elevation changes, rough uneven terrain, requiring a number of stops just to catch your breath. If you need to touch the ground or grasp a rock or tree to help maintain your balance, I'd give it a 3 ½.

Four star> Major elevation changes, the need to use your hands and arms to actually pull yourself up is common.

Five star> Forget it, I'm not crazy enough to look for any of these, so I certainly won't be placing any of them!!!

P.S. If only 10 ft of the hike is a four star section, and the previous mile a one star, I'd list the site as a four star.
