Geocaching In Rocky Mountain National Park

When thinking of beautiful views in Colorado, it is easy to think of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Home of Long's Peak and one of the highest paved roads in the continental United States, Rocky Mountain National Park offers some of the best views in the state.

When thinking of the unspoiled miles of the park, geocaching is a great way to get out and see more of the park than just what everyone sees as they drive by.  To reduce items left behind in the park, the majority of caches that are in the park are either Earth Caches or Virtual Caches, making it possible to find caches without items left in the woods.

My wife and I had a chance to do some hiking in the park and decided to find a couple geocaches along the trail.  We found two Earth caches and one virtual cache.  The picture at right is the lake featured in one of the Earth geocaches.  It was a nice little hike and it is always nice to add a couple caches to the list.  I even got a chance to fly fish a little and caught a beautiful little Cutthroat Trout.  You can read more about that part of the trip on my other blog, here.
