Oregon’s Travel Lane County has created a GeoTour by placing caches along more than 70 miles of the McKenzie River, from the Eugene-Springfield area into the Cascades.
The tourist organization teamed up with geocaching.com to create the tenth official geocaching.com tour in the world and the first on the West Coast. Participants can pick up a Geo-Tour passport at the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Adventure Center in Springfield and can complete the passport by visiting caches and recording the code word found at each place. Those who complete the passport can collect a geocoin and enter to win a trip up the McKenzie River. For details, visit eugenecascadescoast.org/geocaching.
