Don’t just jump out and grab this DogGeo treasure, enjoy yourself with your dog while you are here!



This DogGeo Treasure cache is hidden in a crack of rocks in a small cliff face, on the otherside of the trail from the river.  Your GPS might be a little off because of the rock formations near by, so in the slide show there are more hints to it’s location than normal.  Happy Hunting!



After finding the Cache, take a picture with you and your dog, holding up the Cache, with the trail in the background. Geotag your picture. All iPhone’s and Android phones have this capability, just look in the configuration for the camera. Then carefully place the Cache back exactly where and how you found it, for the next treasure hunter!
