For 100 years, the National Park Service has preserved America’s special places “for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.” Celebrate its second century with the Find Your Park GeoTour that launched April 2016 and explore these geocaches placed for you by National Park Service Rangers and their partners.
There are markers here honoring those who created the National Parks, and those who serve to preserve and protect both the park and those who visit. Some Park Rangers have given their all while on duty. Ranger Jeff Christiansen died while on backcountry patrol, and you will find a tribute to him and his career here at Rocky Mountain National Park.
For the second stage of this cache, note the years when Jeff was born & died. Born: 19 A B, Died: 200C
Final Stage: N 40 21.8 B B, W 105 32.A C 0 (The last digit is a "zero")
Final stage for this cache is OUTSIDE of RMNP's boundaries. The actual cache is a short drive east, towards Estes Park. You will find a micro-cache within easy reach.
