Have you ever geocached?
The hide-and-seek style craze is a network of family-friendly treasure hunts driven by GPS for users who log in at Geocaching.com.
What follows are some highlights from the Geocaching database. Follow the links to find caches of your own (all of the searches we ran were within five miles of Timbers Resorts properties' front doors).
One Steamboat Place: Steamboat Springs offers some 32 geocaches, all of them close to One Steamboat Place. From the 45 acres of Rita's Fork to the core trail of Botanical Park, you can start your search at the Geocaching website.
Dancing Bear Aspen: Explore Aspen's charming downtown, cache by cache, and then track the treasures in Wilton Jaffee, Sr. Park (and beyond). It's a hunt-and-seek adventure one dozen locations large in the Dancing Bear corner of this skiers' paradise.
The Preserve at Botany Bay: Slip down to a local's beach on Hull Bay. Visit the ships by the wave-washed pier. Geocachers have been to St. Thomas before you, and seven of their secret destinations await.
Castello di Casole: Three geocaches lie in wait for searchers in this part of Tuscany. Visit Le Vergene Castle and slip into Mensano to see its church. Casole d'Elsa - the town for which Castello di Casole is named - is also one of these select destinations.
Esperanza: You might end up close to the museum in Cabo, or you may find yourself climbing to a perch above the white-sand beaches, but the 10 caches near Esperanza are designed to open your eyes to the lush landscape in all-new ways.
