EarthCache Event: Formation of Rocks

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

last week I hosted an EarthCache Event. I called it EarthCache Event because the focus was on geology. We started the day with two field trips. I gave a talk at the main event about rocks, the Alpine orogeny and many other topics. A big part was how a geocacher can create his own EarthCache (all steps from an idea to the publish). Two geoawares visited the event so every question had been answered. The discussion after the talk took some hours. All logs were 100% positive, so I can encourage other Geocachers to host an event like this. EarthCache Event

 

Here are some pictures:

Cool! Thanks for sharing. Looks like a pretty good crowd. I did something similar a few years ago, although I enlisted the help of the Ranger Geologist for the Park to do the explanation/guiding for me :)

Of course, the views were pretty good as well, which made concentrating on what Dr. Greg was talking about difficult ;)

This makes me super happy, especially as I can identify folks in each photo.

 

Events like this are a great service to the community, thanks for hosting them!
