What geocachers are saying about South Park GeoTour:
“Cannot thank SPNHA, and Ms. ED (you know who you are) for all that this series allowed us to experience. You have our sincere appreciation and admiration. THIS is what geocaching is all about, and the CSP GeoTour is truly an experience that we will never forget.”-3 Williams Kidz
“THIS is why I geocache. Wow, beautiful! About half way up I wondered why I was doing this… Then I remembered there was a geocache at the top.”-Phyl & Mike
“This was my first CSP cache, and I’m impressed, by the quality of the cache page, the historical site, and the work on the container – all very nice. Found the cache and took a minute or two to check out the cabin, SL TFTC!” -hiking_fool
You can also find the oldest geocache in Colorado while you are here (GC18)!
