Geocache Description:

Located on Mount Evans. You will have to pay a fee to get in the park.
It's a traditional cache at the end of the road of Mount Evans.

UPDATED: 7/31/2016
The cache has bee updated. I replace the container with a new one, a new log, pencil and the much coveted Cajuns in colorado geocoin.

UPDATED: 05/07
Beware: This have been removed or sabatoged.
If there are a few more DNFs I'll disable.

UPDATE: 10/05

I had a few 'not found' logs so I took a trip up there and planted a new cache - same coordinates on 6/25/05.

Again, I'm getting some NOT FOUNDS, but it seems that in the past once in a while someone would find it even with the not founds.

SO: Look at it this way, if you are going to Mount Evans take a look, but don't plan a special trip. After the thaw, if I get more NOT FOUNDs, I'll disable. Park Rangers may be removing the cache.

Good Luck

****************************************************

I rated this a 2 becuase you have to climb over some rocks (no climbing gear, just good hiking shoes). Also, I think it might be a little hard to find considering the terrain. If I get 'easy' remarks, I'll change it.

After a nice drive up the mountain, you'll have a small challenge to find the cache. There are a lot of people around, so be secretive!

Think about the name and it'll get you in the general area.

BONUS: You might see mountain goats, long horn sheep (ram) and assorted prarie dog looking creatures! There are also a couple of stops along the way with good hiking.

Cache contains:
1. Log book and pen (please don't remove)
2. Silly putty
3. super balls
4. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Band Aids

NOTE: There is no water or food on top, just a port-o-let style bathroom.

IMPORTANT: Do not take elevation sickness lightly. It's almost 3 miles in the sky. Bring and drink WATER and some snacks.

Good Luck!
