E Lehner Rd, Hereford, AZ, US

9:20 p.m. Yay... Metrorail & I saw this had published this morning, but we were in our hotel in Chandler about 200 miles away and 111 degrees outside, so it was a no go. At 5:00 p.m. we were waiting for dinner & saw this little guy was still not claimed so we decided to go for it. Finished up & hit the road. Very dark when we got here. Took a bit to find with a flashlight, but found it was. Now to drive back, should get to Chandler about 1:00 a.m. Thanks for placing this Mammoth to find. The placement could not have been more appropriate for the Mammoth Snag the Tag. Amazing history of the area. Thank you for bringing us here. Wish I could give a favorite point. [:D]


cron publish 2 years 7 months ago 241 - Arizona Mammoths Found Here!

E Lehner Rd, Hereford, AZ, US

The Lehner Mammoth-Kill Site is located in southern Arizona in the San Pedro Valley. This site is significant for providing evidence that mammoths were killed here by Paleo-Indians 9000 years BCE.

In 1952, Ed Lehner discovered extinct mammoth bone fragments on his ranch and notified the Arizona State Museum. Excavations took place in 1955-56, and again in 1974-75. Two Clovis projectile points were found among the ribs of a young mammoth.

The Lehner Mammoth-Kill Site was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1967. In 1988, Mr. and Mrs. Lehner donated the 6 acre site to the Bureau of Land Management for the benefit and education of the public.

This Mammoth is hidden at the posted coordinates. He is not hiding on the monument, but his location can be seen in the photos!

Got an early morning nudge from a FB friend that a mammoth was spotted just north of Barrie. With just enough time before work I sprinted up the highway and was delighted to find a mammoth still hanging out in Craighurst. This was my first mammoth find!

Mammoth or Mammoth: the first is described as huge, enormous, gigantic while the second is described as a large extinct elephant of the Pleistocene epoch. Don’t you become extinct like the Mammoth, use proper hygiene maintain health and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Craighurst is a sleepy village just a little north of Barrie Ontario. A village proud of its heritage, the Pioneers that make up Simcoe County. This little parkette is a perfect place to sit and contemplate during these uncertain times. My first thought was to attach it to something but that didn’t work out.

Hidden near beautiful Green Valley Lake behind the carved eagle, in front of a small grove of pine trees. Look at the back of the eagle. The mammoth is hidden in a plastic bag, in a carved out spot on the back of the eagle, about eye level. You'll have to stand up on the rocks to see it. You will not be on the lake's edge; rather, the eagle is across the street from the lake. The posted picture of the lake is just to show you how beautiful the area is!

cron publish 2 years 7 months ago 853 - Melbourne Mammoth

FL-507, Melbourne, FL, US

Melbourne Bone Bed is a paleontological site located at Crane Creek in Melbourne, Florida. This site contains fossils from the Late Pleistocene period 20,000 to 10,000 years before present. The fossils include extinct animals such as varieties of camels, giant armadillos, giant beavers, giant bison, giant ground sloths, mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats and tapirs.

Just imaging the Melbourne Mammoth walking down this path, to this quiet spot for a cool, refreshing drink of water.

To Find the Melbourne Mammoth: Park in the recommended Botanical Gardens Visitors spots (see below). Head North to the service road (Florida Tech Drive). Look for the large Staghorn Fern hanging that marks the beginning of the trail. Cross over bridge number 1. Follow the trail till you see the sign for High Pagoda and head there. Cross over bridge number 2. Pass the High Pagoda and go to the tree nearest the waters edge and look in the roots under some Spanish Moss. Claim your Mammoth!!

Joy & Gordon Patterson Botanical Garden: A stream bordered by a shady hammock abounding in palm trees and other tropical growth winds through the heart of the campus and is the setting for a 15-acre Botanical Garden. This is a public garden. As there are natural water features and other potential hazards, please exercise caution during your visit. For your safety, stay on the trails or within walled/patio areas. The trails can be muddy.

Parking is available in the red-striped spaces in the Jungle-adjacent parking lot along the wood-line, off of Babcock Street, across from the Southgate intersection.

So, I got a message telling me how to redeem for the coin, and I went through all the steps, but my computer seemed to hang up after entering the credit card info and would not continue, so I backed out. Now I can't figure out how to get back to that message to go back and try to order my coin as I don't have the code. My tag number is 095-GVZ and it was found in Sequim, WA. Thank you.

This mammoth wanted to visit some other animals so he came here. Unfortunately, he didn’t find any of his ancestors. He did find a pink flamingo that had a long neck that reminded him of his trunk, though. Look for the mammoth under the cut tree stump.

This snag was about as close as I’ll ever get to jumping after a newly published tag hide. Checking FB this morning I saw the notification was 1 hr 50 min old. I figured it was worth having a look, and if it was gone I’d start my caching from there. Got up, dressed, made coffee, got in the car, Checked again: still unclaimed, started the 45 minute drive, fully prepared to discover it was already claimed by the time I got there. It’s nice to be wrong sometimes.

Nestled beneath the Playground of the Gods sits a mammoth awaiting its discovery after a prolonged period of hibernation.

The views from this park are most spectacular at sunset, however, any time of day you can enjoy the sights looking down upon Downtown Vancouver or Burrard Inlet.

This mammoth likes it cozy, you'll find it tucked in at the end of the fence where the fence post meets the upper rail.

The Snoqualmie Valley holds many secrets, maybe even a lonely or lost mammoth. The terrain here varies greatly from season to season and right now it is lush and dense, perfect to obscure a mammoth. As i walked the path I noticed two benches with a short stairway next to them. I'm sure I heard something in the rocks to the left of them, but it sounded ancient so I scurried on down the path.

Saw this tag post last night and put a watch on it for this morning, and if it had not been claimed, then Peach was going to drive from Kent to try and get it. She apologizes for the slower post than she planned but her phone would not let her post instantly in Sequim, as she tried to post it as soon as it was picked up. She tried again in Shelton with no luck. Finally, when she returned home, she was able to post from Kent. When she arrived at the coordinates, she thought for a few minutes that she was too late after looking at the pictures, particularly in the tree, but looked down on the ground and saw it laying there. An apology to the other cacher, ThrYar, who also attempted to get this today, but I could not post any sooner. Peach remembers that she and Pete found a Traditional cache at this location many years ago on one of our annual trips to Sequim.

Went on a beautiful walk down part of the Eastern Trail I hadn’t been on since winter. I had a much easier time without the snow! Stopped to smell the flowers along the way, got to a dead end, and before I knew it I was participating in a prehistoric excavation. He was safe and sound. Cool spot!

Desfosses Ave, Pine Point, Scarborough, ME, US

Quote from Bangor Daily April 1, 1992: "A highly traveled tusk, once thought to have been from a 19th century circus elephant, has been identified by Boston University geologist D.W. Caldwell as belonging to an ancient mammoth. The tusk, found in southern Maine in 1959, is on display at the Maine State Museum." Today, 60 years later, rummer has it that there was a sighting of the remains of woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). Structural engineer working on designing the bridge over Nonesuch River as a part of project Close the Gap, saw the skeleton, but failed to record the location. The only think he remembers is that there was a suspicious looking pile of rocks covering the remains, to the left of a big granite boulder. Are you going to be the one to find it and add your name to the history books?

Note to all paleontologists: There is a closer access road, but it is in private residential area and is open only for the residents and their guests. Do not park there and use the listed parking instead. The sighting location is about 2 miles round trip from the parking.
