Geocache Description:


I was looking to place a new geoart and I spotted a christmas tree in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Thanks to ChristmasGuy for allowing me to duplicate his art here in northern Michigan. This series of 33 caches will have you exploring the Pere Marquette State Forest where you will see lots of Christmas trees.

All trivia questions in this series are related to Christmas.  Some questions come from his favorite Christmas movies and some he discovered via google searches.  They are not meant to be hard although some may be tricky and sneaky. 

All the caches are soda preforms. Most are easy to find if you use the hint. Many of the roads in the area are seasonal so you may not be able to drive them during the snowy or wet seasons. Consider snowmobile, snow shoes, or cross country skis. Most are close to the roads. Some are as much as 150' from the road. At least 1 is a 12' tree climb (or bring a ladder).
