"When you go to hide a cache, think of the reason you are bringing people to that spot.
If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot."

Cameron County Geotrail

We got confirmation at the prior day's conference that the Cameron County Coin was not trackable. Still, we looked on the Cameron County Trail as a chance to cache in a couple state parks, cache in Elk State Forest, and cache in Quehanna Wildlife Area which previously had no caches. Our weather mix for the day was really variable. We started the day at the DCNR offices with low clouds rolling through the mountains. By the time we were in higher elevation, we saw our first real snow of the season followed shortly by blue skies which stayed with us for the afternoon. We spent a good part of the day with Liz and Wes of kcepenn. Eventually, they needed to get back to Emporium to meet with Geobeerer and we needed to finish the trail so we could head west before nightfall.

We had fun. We missed some of the published trail caches and ended up using the listed coordinates from the brochure to find some of the unpublished caches and qualify for our coin. After we retrieved the coin, we enjoyed milk shakes at the Sinnemahoning Sportsman Club and hit the road for home. We'll have to return for another visit with the Elk and to find more of the DCNR Legacy of Conservation Series.
