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). 

The venues are among the most magical places for groups to experience the western U.S. and Canada.

 

Recently, I’ve noticed the trend of meeting planners looking for a fully customized and personalized event experience, and there’s no better way to accomplish that than buying out an entire resort or hotel with a beautiful setting such as a mountain backdrop. Although a buyout can sound expensive and unobtainable, many ways exist to find flexible rates that will allow companies to book a private retreat while not overdrawing on any budgetary restrictions. 

 

These neighboring destinations offer opportunities for meetings and events on both sides of a mountain pass.
