“100 geocaches in 100 parks for 100 years”—that’s the slogan for the Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour, a statewide challenge that showcases the diversity of Washington’s parks. From old-growth forests to ocean beaches, historic forts to modern campgrounds, the geocaches highlight scenic wonders, explore local history and showcase recreational opportunities.
The GeoTour kicked off June 7 with more than 3,400 geocachers currently participating in this statewide tour of the parks. Participants who find 50 and 100 geocaches can receive commemorative geocoins and log finds on special challenge caches. One participant wrote, “We were able to glimpse so much of what our state has to offer, learn some history of Washington, and have our eyes opened to all of those places we never dreamed existed (some places just outside our door).”
The Centennial GeoTour is a partnership between Washington State Parks and the Washington State Geocaching Association (WSGA), the recreational group that supports geocachers and works with land managers across Washington State.
Celebrate 100 years of Washington State Parks by taking a RV geocaching tour this fall. Sounds like an adventure in RVing to me!
