Posted by: katcogo on Thursday, June 14, 2012 (06:42:48)


The Gold Country Gold Trail announced they will launch Phase II of their very popular Geocaching GeoTour this summer

The program shows visitors the mainroads and backroads of the Gold Country in the interior of BC. Each cache site has been selected to highlight an aspect of the human or geological history of this interesting part of our province. Each cache is accompanied with a very well researched and written description of the significance of the spot.

The launch events will take place throughout the summer. At each event 12 new caches will be published in the surrounding area. The cache pages will be available at the event with the caches published the following day on The original 72 caches are still active and there will be another 72 caches published. Once again a booklet of all caches will be published, probably in September.
