Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

Snowflakewooden

This series of “snow” travel bugs each commemorates a cold US city.  I am not sure how one determines the coldest US cities in the winter.  Does one rank the record lows, lowest monthly averages or lowest winter averages?   Many of the cities would appear on all three lists.  Rather than try to assign a ranking, I will simply include some cities or hamlets from each of the criteria.  Regardless of ranking, we have to  acknowledge that all of the locations identified in this series are really, really cold places in winter.

Riverside Ranger Station is in Yellowstone, Wyoming.   Back in the 1870s and 1880s, the soldiers who were stationed in what is now the Fort Yellowstone Historic District inside Yellowstone National Park reportedly had a saying about their temporary home: "In Yellowstone, there are only two seasons: winter and July."  Temperatures there in winter will leave no doubt that's the case. The old Riverside Ranger Station inside the park recorded Wyoming's coldest-ever temperature of 66 below zero on Feb. 9, 1933.
