All you have to have is a GPS that will let you input coordinates and you can play. Imagine the fun of riding the trails of Cloud 9 Ranch while looking for hidden treasures. Well maybe not actual treasures but they are hidden. Please visit and check out the links. Check out the link to the coordinates and click on a camera icon to see pictures from cameras left in GeoStashs. There have been many new pictures posted since June. If you find a GeoStash please sign the log book so we will know you have visited. If you see a “Treasure” in the GeoStash that you are welcome to take it. All we ask is you leave something in its place so the next person has something to find. Most of the GeoStashs don’t have cameras in them right now. If you enjoy looking at the pictures feel free to put a disposable camera in a GeoStash. When it is full someone will get it developed and post the pictures for everyone to see. Don’t miss out on the fun, dust off that GPS and find some GeoStashs!
