Under direction of the Utah Office of Tourism, a team of volunteer geocachers have thoughtfully placed geocaches in locations of exceptional scenic, historic and cultural interest throughout the state. Groups and individuals can download an app from geocaching.com that highlights all of the stashes. Once Utah GeoTour participants find three of a county’s five Utah Geo Tour geocaches (all placed in ammo cans), they can follow the instructions on a laminated code card found within each cache to a patch pick-up location as all of Utah’s 29 counties have a unique patch designed by the Utah Office of Tourism. Once a geocacher has been awarded 10 county patches, he or she is qualified to receive an official Utah GeoCoin. If any geocacher is ambitious enough to redeem all 29 patches, an official Utah Geo Tour jacket for displaying the patches is awarded (while supplies last, otherwise another special reward is presented).
Anvil Hotel, a new 49-room property in downtown Jackson Hole, is actually a renovation of two buildings originally constructed as a motel in the 1950s. The hotel’s lobby functions as both a café and mercantile curated by high-end outdoor retailer, Westerlind. The hotel’s restaurant, Glorietta Trattoria, is named after Jackson’s nearby Mount Glory and located a short walk from the lobby on Glenwood Street.
