Spend a day hunting in Rockford

Marc Rasmussen, Piere Houston, Devan Houston and Travis Meier, all of Northview, spent one of the days of a hot summer looking for geocaches in the Rockford downtown and surrounding areas. They were quick to find the geocache at the Rockford Squire offices at 331 Northland Drive. The young men also looked for caches in Memorial Park, the cemetery and “Dinosaur Park.” They were kind enough to slow down long enough for Squire editor Beth Altena to take this picture before heading off on their way to more.

Geocaches are hidden containers which can be found by following coordinates from a Global Positioning System (GPS). Coordinates are found at geocaching.com. This free, fun family activity is a great way to find unusual places, beautiful parks or to get to know a new area.
