Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made.

This cache has been archived.

ColoradoGeoArt: We would like the geocaching community to know that we did not take this decision lightly. This was based on experiences throughout the entire life of the artwork, private emails with the locals, cache logs both good and bad. We understand that many folks had solved the puzzles, made plans, bought plane tickets, made reservations, etc. in order to find this giant GeoArt. However, we have to take the geocaching experience and the safety of the finders into consideration - and we feel that the experiences posted in the logs and the threats made by locals via email and onsite were not only unacceptable, but are also a poor example of what Geocaching in Colorado has to offer.

We have several teams going out over the next few weeks to pick up all of the caches so we leave this area clean. They will be allowed to log the artwork as they do so, but we wanted to get the archivals done to prevent any more attempts on it. Their cars will be labeled as clean-up crews for safety.

ALL trackables found in this process will be picked up and moved, no TB left behind :)

Again, Colorado has some great caching opportunities. If you missed the art, we still have two geotours, the largest library series (that we know of), and other smaller artworks throughout the state. Find us on Facebook for more suggestions, you will not be disappointed :)

Colorado Fact Tour

Category: Animals - Birds
Key: Canada Goose

Details: Branta canadensis Habitat: Reservoirs, ponds, gravel pits, rivers, marshes, wet meadows, croplands, city parks, and golf courses. On the plains near the northeastern foothills, birds nest mostly around reservoirs and gravel pits, while riverine areas are the main habitats in northwestern and northeastern Colorado (Colorado Division of Wildlife 1989). In winter and during migration, they occur primarily at reservoirs and feed in grainfields. Range in Colorado: About 50,000–70,000 winter on the plains near northeastern foothills, 5,000–20,000 on extreme northeastern plains, and 20,000–30,000 in the Arkansas River valley in southeastern Colorado. Smaller numbers winter at Bonny Reservoir, Yuma County, and Two Buttes Reservoir, Baca County. Several thousand winter in the San Luis Valley and in the western valleys along the Green, Colorado, Gunnison, Uncompahgre, and Dolores rivers. Small numbers also nest in the Cortez area, Montezuma County, and statewide in foothills and mountains.

Cache location: N39 54.( 102 + keyphrase ) W102 40.( 130 + keyphrase )
