Popular State Parks GeoTour to end this summer

 


The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Washington State Geocaching Association have announced the Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour will officially end June 6. However, the caches will remain active through Sept. 30, and geocaching enthusiasts will have until Oct. 10 to submit passports for prize coins.

The Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour was created in June 2013 as part of the State Parks’ 100th anniversary celebration. The GeoTour featured more than 100 geocaches hidden at points of interest in 102 state parks across the state.

On June 6, the  GeoTour web page (http://j.mp/ 1M0R8FK) will no longer be active. Geocachers will still be able to view all the caches at http://j.mp/1RyI9Zp. In addition, the passport, guidelines and map are viewable and downloadable at on the Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour page: http://parks.state.wa.us/124/Centennial-GeoTour

 After Sept. 30, some caches may remain as regular caches at the discretion of individual parks and cache owners. But they won’t be part of a GeoTour, and passport submissions will no longer be accepted after the Oct. 10 cutoff. State Parks is looking into offering new geoadventures in the future.
