Geocache Description:


This series of caches is placed along the old US-6 highway that connected Grand Junction CO to Green River UT from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. It was superseded by interstate highway I-70 in the early 1960s. This series of caches was placed on a section of the road that connects Mack CO to I-70  in Utah. The road is still used but the traffic is quite sparse. It is paved, but has it's bumps and potholes. Travel is possible with 2-WD vehicles ( we placed these caches with a 2011 KIA Soul). The route is 26 miles long and no services are present.

It is recommended that you take sufficient water and appropriate clothing for the time of year that you are caching along this route. Long sleeves and a pair of gardening gloves might be useful because many of the caches are placed within various desert bushes and trees. Desert vegetation is known for it's rough pointed texture. Appropriate footwear for the desert environment even though most of the caches are not too far from the roadside. It is also recommended that you remain aware of any desert creatures ranging from tiny bugs to Pronghorn Antelope that inhabit the area.

Caches that are hidden in bushes are attached with a wire hanger. The container can easily be removed from the hanger by simply lifting it out of the wire loop. It is extremely important that the container be placed back in the hanger to prevent desert creatures such as the pack-rat from creating their own cache of cache containers!
