Visit Rainier has created a new geocaching GeoTour for the Mt. Rainier region!

Visit Rainier has created a new geocaching GeoTour for the Mt. Rainier region! Discovering these 100 geocaches is a new way to experience diverse locations and terrain in and around the park and another way to celebrate 100 years of the National Park Service. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunt using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. For all the details go to VisitRainier.com/GeoTour.unnamed (6)

Millions of people have become involved in geocaching. First started by technology and GPS enthusiasts, the ranks of Geocachers now include couples, families and people all over the world. 
 
The excitement of the hunt appeals to people of all ages!  Because of the activities’ popularity, caches have been hidden all over the world, and found by walking, biking, or driving to a hidden cache. The activity has been embraced for its educational value and as a fun activity working together to explore new places. 
 
When someone finds a cache, they open the container and sign the log sheet. When they get back to their computer, they can also log their find online. (Many smartphone apps also allow you do so from your phone.) The container can also contain “swag” items for trade, or even “travel bugs” on dog tags that can be logged online and then moved to another geocache for someone else to find.
