Here's one for the "old-timers". Yes, there was a time when it was legal to geocache in our wonderful state park system. For those geocaching in the summer of 2002 and before, what was your favorite geocache in a Minnesota State Park? Please list the cache and the state park.

Mine was HELLS GATE by KO_DAT_VEY. Great hike along the boulder-strewn canyon of the Kettle River in Banning State Park.

It was my 5th geocache and only one of only 5 or so that I was able to find in a MN state park prior to the ban. I've since found caches in 6 other state park systems and each time I am filled with regret that we can't cache in some of the best areas in my home state.

As a "new-comer" I've never been able to legally hunt caches in MN state parks. However, I have found at least one but I won't name it since it is still active!

I'll second towlebooth's pick of HELLS GATE--I especially liked walking through the old quarry in the area on the way to the cache.

Alright - so that thread didn't go too far.

Here's a question for all of you. I submitted a photo for the calendar from a legal, pre-ban geocache expedition into a MN State Park. Can you guess which photo that is?

My quick guess based on looking at the pictures once and not voting yet would be the pic of Shovel Point in Tettegouche.

But that's just a guess Cool

Nope. Anyone else? (Please list by month and pic # so others can play along)
