Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the given coordinates. 


Thunderbird

The Thunderbird symbol is one of the most dominant icons in Indian culture and art. Descriptions of the thunderbird are found on totems, pottery, cave art, and in the ancient Indian legends and myths.

It is believed among the Lakota Sioux that if you had a dream or vision of birds you were destined to be a Medicine Man but if you had a vision of the Thunderbird, it was your destiny to become a sacred clown.

The Thunderbird symbol is depicted in many ways and often features in pictograms. The thunderbird is the symbol of thunder, lightning and storms which are created when the thunderbird flies. The thunderbird is depicted as a large raptor like bird usually with curling horns, long legs, a long beak and a featherless head. Sheet lightning is believed to flash from its eyes when it blinks, and individual lightning bolts made by the glowing snakes or serpents that follows it. The thunderbird is depicted in masks as many-colored, with two curling horns and teeth within its beak.

Note- All caches are on BLM property and well away from any historically significant sites. Please play responsibly and consider your surroundings. Please don't leave litter and if you find any pack it out if possible. Most caches are of the same type, unless specifically noted on the cache page, which should help in finding them. The BLM has been very helpful to the geocaching community by allowing this art to be placed, so lets kindly return the favor. This is meant to be a walking series. Quoting from Billionj- Vehicles within the natural desert are environmentally deleterious and will give the environmental groups a reason to restrict geocaching, besides, it’s just plain rude. So, please stay on designated roads and trails and avoid using motor vehicles in wet and muddy areas. 

Items in the cache are related to the Indian theme. Please remember to trade fairly.
