Find your treasure

In an effort to lure us out of our cozy homes and into the forests, state park officials have hidden GPS units and books that are free to the finders.

They're tucked away in select cabins and yurts.

Did I mention writer Dave Philipps is on a yurt trip this weekend? Hmmmm. I think TV writer Andy Wineke is with him. I hope they bring back a new toy.

The giveaway is part of the state's Love Your State Parks program. Don't worry, you didn't pay for treasures. The GPS units were donated by the Foundation for Colorado State Parks. REI and Fulcrum Publishing donated copies of the locally written book “The Essential Guide to Geocaching.”

Let us know if your pirate skills pay off. Arrgh!

The treasures are hidden at cabins and yurts in:

Cabin and yurt amenities vary, but all have either electric, propane or wood stove heat.

That's really cool about the treasure hunt. I hear Geocaching is a lot of fun. Hope the guys have good luck in finding one.
