Get Outdoors Under the Arch

A group of us was involved in the national parks’ "Get Outdoors Under the Arch" event.  Several families and individuals got to learn what geocaching is via direct, hands-on play. This event also served as the first test run of our organization's new GPSr units – with interfaces foreign to some old-time cachers… but second nature to the kids used to touch screens.  Special thanks to the SLAGA members who came out to help. After spending some time training new (future) geocachers, we decided it was time to have a little fun.
