Urban Multi-Caches can reveal take geocaching a park, new vantage point, or hidden gem in a city geocachers never expected. “Citygarden Tour” (GC2AX7Q) delivers adventurers to a sculpture park in the middle of an American city better know for blues music and barbeque than public art.
St. Louis geocachers tracking down the answers for this difficulty three, terrain two Multi-Cache walk away discovering a slice of St.Louis culture.
The cache requires adventures to answer six questions they unlock by exploring the park. The questions ask people to find the birth year of artists, count wind chimes, and more. The answers are then plugged into a formula that is found on the cache page. The results complete a set of coordinates which lead geocachers to the cache.
Strider hid the micro cache in 2010. It’s accumulated more than 30 Favorite Points. Cachers who logged the “Citygarden Tour” write, “This was a totally awesome cache. We thoroughly enjoyed taking in all the features in the park… Thanks for bringing us here, and for an imaginative cache.”
Have you ever completed an Urban Multi-Cache that helped you explore a city?
Geocaching reveals a world that’s often hidden to others. Take ‘Thar She Blows!’ (GC4ADE) in Oklahoma, USA for example.
American motorists, since the 1920′s, zipped along a famous stretch of road know as Route 66. The highway connected the growing country to the West Coast. The prominence and popularity of Route 66 rose as the country grew.
That all changed in the 1950′s as the U.S. Interstate system gradually made Route 66 obsolete. But geocachers can still discover a little remembered tourist stop. ‘Thar She Blows!’ delivers geocachers to an unexpected site – a blue whale wading in a small pond. The difficulty two, terrain one geocache was hidden by Golden Retrievers in 2002. It has been rewarded with more than 40 Favorite Points so far.
One geocacher who logged a smiley on the cache writes, “What an excellent roadside attraction. We were going to Tulsa today anyway, and the weather was quite nice, so we thought – ‘hey, why not go see a big blue whale?’ …. Assigning a favorite point because this is just so unusual and off the wall.”
Just picked up this trackable in memory of a cacher no longer with us. Today was the anniversary day and figured we all should send the owner a virtual hug. Feel free to join in.
