I was informed about this mission by a fellow geocacher. This was totally new to me. Really had no idea what I was doing and have no idea who left this tag but I really appreciate it. I think I'd like to leave a few somewhere. Going to do some more research on this. Thanks so much.

We planned to go out today and didn't know where. This was just published and it gave us a direction to travel. The parking lot was full and off we went after I figured out a way to get the coordinates in a compass. It was the strangest thing to feel the air get soo cold as we approached the cave entrance. I got a little chilly on this nearly 90 degree day. Using the hint it was an easy find. Perfect temperature for the Wooly Mammoth.

Texas Pride is where this mammoth stopped by. Enjoy the antiques and the cool ambiance of a legendary BBQ joint that was featured on DDD with Guy Fiero. If you are here on a busy weekend the valet is on horseback... well hes isnt really a valet.. but her does direct parking and sometimes there are 2 cowboys for the job.

This mammoth hides on a metal post. watch for cowboys!!!! Post a photo or 2 with your claim log!! yeehaw!!!

This Mammoth has wandered through a prehistoric nature preserve where dinosaurs used to roam.

The round trip hike will be just under 2 miles. You will need to take the back loop trail that has some elevation change and a bit of terrain challenge. bring water or hike earlier in the day. the park is open at 7 and closes at sunset.

This mammoth is hidden under some rocks and grass at the turn in the trail where there is a berm of rocks. There is an arrow shaped with rocks to direct you to the mammoth here. Have fun with the hike.

There are Parking coordinates provided where there is running water restrooms and a beautiful park pavillion with plenty of shade.


cron publish 21 hours 17 minutes ago 109 - Mammoth cave

S Sunnyside Rd, Hibernia, Rockaway, NJ, US

I was sitting on the nearby platform enjoying the nice cool air blowing out of the cave when something else caught my eye. If you come here in the early evening you can enjoy the show and watch the bats emerging from their home, and until today, I wasn't aware that there was also a mammoth living in the cave. Apparently he is shy and will run and hide as soon as anyone comes around, but if you search, you may be able to find him.

Beware of poison ivy in the area. You do not need to be in or near any of the poison ivy to find the tag. In other words, It is NOT under the platform, so there is no need to be in the poison ivy looking under the platform.

Mammoth loves history and hides very near the pillars that share Heritage to San Antonio.

Take a moment to peruse the small murals on the pillars. There is parking right here beneath the freeway. Please come and find this mammoth during daylight hours.

The mammoth tag you seek is located beneath a few rocks near a mammoth railway rail lying on the ground parallel with the 2nd row of big blue pillars away from Mission Rd.

Be sure to share some photos of the mammoth with some of the small murals located here.

Noticed this one this morning, pretty sure I've found caches right here in the past, but now am living on the other side of the Sound. When it wasn't claimed by the time I finished work, I set out - just barely caught the ferry from Seattle, made the quick find, returned by way of Tacoma. Very nice, thanks!

I (Ol'Fogie) jumped outta bed to address another day of pushing Prozac and pickles. Just as I fired up the cachemobile I got the notice that this new tag had dropped.

It was only slightly off my regular route, so I made the quick detour to campus to score the find! Between the early hour and the pandemic, I pretty much had the place to myself.

Thanks for the tag, Norelkfiend!

kd1992 check_circle 3 days 8 hours ago 972 - GS! Mammoth Bike Trail 2

Jacksonville-Baldwin Trail, Southwest Jacksonville, Jacksonville, FL, US

We where very excited to see that a Mammoth tag was in the Jacksonville area. It was available and it had only been out in public for two days. We jumped in the car and drove the 30 miles to the Baldwin bike trail. We walked a mile in the rain to the posted coordinates and started our search. We where quickly soaking wet and covered in spider webs from the many that cover the trees in the area. An hour and a half later we gave up. We kept an eye on the tag and saw that it had not been claimed several days later. Trip number two was much dryer than our first try. Twenty minutes into our search I spotted a small piece of plastic bag sticking out of the crack in the wooden fence. Not expecting much, I pulled on it and to my surprise it was the Mammoth tag. My daughter and I quickly high fived each other and did our version of a happy dance. This find made our day. Thank you to the hider for making this experience possible.

Thanks Dennis and Allyson

Not really a Mammoth nor a bag of bones. Decent sized hiding spot and we know how everybody hates tanks and trains for hides. This should be pretty straight forward, check the backside of the rear shock

Mamut heard that penguins were flying, so naturally he wanted th show them up! Find the big Herky Bird, then look for the port side landing light near the rear wheel. Have fun and good luck!

Well, maybe it's Glacier droppings. This has been here as long if not longer than I've been alive. Well actually a lot longer. I'm old but not THAT old. lol Not many large rocks around the area but when you find one, it's big. You will find this Mammoth munching on some foliage near by.

Willis, TX, US location_on N 30 23.037, W 095 33.976

This Mammoth has taken social distancing to heart in these uncertain times! He took himself for a nice little swim and secured a chunk of prime real estate- an island in the midst of Lake Conroe!

Most visitors arrive here by motor powered boat, although a few daring travelers have been seen paddling themselves around on kayaks and stand up paddleboards.

You will find this tag in a green pill container nestled in the cool sand at the bottom of a palm tree. To make this tag an even more rewarding find- there is also a traditional cache at this location. You can get a 2 for 1 deal! Check out GC5W8RH for more info-

There are many great caches to be had around this water lover's paradise! Visit Conroe is also home to Geo Tour GT8D-

Coordinates take you close. Hidden in Squak Valley North nature area. There are well defined trails altho the park has seen less maintenance than usual and a sculpture artwork that looks like tw large mammoth tusks. The tag is located under a nearby bench under a pile of pebbles.

The parking area is located south of the tag and can fit up to 5 cars. Follow the trail around. As a diversion you can visit the river to the west.

:) right place right time. I was driving to work and just happened to see the notification pop on the phone. What do you know, it was only 2 exits ahead of me:) I searched the area I spotted in the pic and came up empty but thankfully, there was more than one bench. It was a quick find. What a perfect spot to place a mammoth tag. I'll have to return when they are open.
