Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Gilby Challenge Series! 🎢 

This challenge cache is hidden at the posted coordinates. The hide is a standard park-and-grab but the D/T has been adjusted to fit the challenge. To claim a find, sign the log and meet the requirements listed below. You are welcome to sign the log at any time, post a note, and log a find once you meet the requirements.

This challenge was inspired by the "North Dakota Hymn," designated as the official state song in 1947. 

With thy prairies wide and free
All thy sons and daughters love thee,
Fairest state from sea to sea;
North Dakota, North Dakota,
Here we pledge ourselves to thee.

Hear thy loyal children  singing,
Songs of happiness and praise,
Far and long the echoes ringing,
Through the vastness of thy ways;
North Dakota, North Dakota,
We will serve thee all our days.

Onward, onward, onward going,
Light of courage  in thine eyes,
Sweet the winds above thee blowing,
Green thy fields and fair thy skies; 
North Dakota, North Dakota,
Brave the soul that in thee lies.

God of freedom, all victorious,
Give us souls serene and strong,
Strength to make the future glorious,
Keep the echo of our song;
North Dakota, North Dakota,
In our hearts forever long.
