TEAM_CSG’s quest to fill in month/day combinations where we have never found a geocache.
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS)receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. (Source: Wikipedia)
Mondo’s NAT #445 – Penobscot – the most legendary cacher in Colorado is simply known as Mondo. He has over 73000 finds and almost 1400 hides, and a charter member of geocaching.com.
Today’s cache is part of a 500 cache series honoring Native American Tribes. Penobscot Indians (derived by Vetromile from the Pānnawānbskek, ‘it forks on the white rocks,’ or Penaubsket, ‘it flows on rocks’; Godfrey and Ballard practically agree with Vetromile, the name applying directly to the falls at Oldtown, but Ballard says it has also been rendered ‘rock land,’ from penops [penopsc] ‘rock,’ and cöt [ot] locative, applied to the bluff at the mouth of the river near Castine. Gerard gives the aboriginal form as Pěnobskât, lit.’ plenty stones’). They are a tribe of the Abnaki confederacy (q. v.), closely related in language and customs to the Norridgewock. They are sometimes included in the most numerous tribe of the Abnaki confederacy, and for a time more influential than the Norridgewock. (From the cache listing).
This cache is located and the southern end of Majestic View Park. As you can see from the picture, the park is well named.
