COCo's - Logan

**********************************************************
The COCo's is a letterbox series consisting of 64 letterboxes...okay, well, it will when it's finished. This series represents every county in the state of Colorado. Originally, Colorado was subdivided into just 17 counties, only two of which remain today as they were originally defined.

For the 'Professional Boxer' these stamps are not intricate, what can you do with a square county? We will; however, attempt to place them in interesting locations and also seek to place them where no other box has gone before.

To assist you and make it a little more fun, there is a county map of Colorado available on our Blog (see link above) that we used to carve these stamps. Please print the map before heading out for your first box. You can stamp the map as you collect these staamps as well as your log book.

It may take us awhile to get around to all 64 counties, so please be patient. Hopefully we'll finish before there are 65.

***********************************************************
Logan:
Formed Feb 25th, 1887 from part of Weld County, it was later subdivided to create Phillips and Sedgewick Counties. Logan County was named for General John A Logan. Historically, Logan County was the hub of indian wars, including the Sand Creek Masacre and is home to several historic trails, namely, the Overland Trail, the Pawnee Pioneer Trail and the South Platte Trail.

Find the Overland Trail in Sterling. Follow the trail aroound to the right, past the modern outhouse. Continue around the pond to the right, past Dalton Hunker. Continue on 37*. Notice the slight trail downhill to the right. Go down the embankment, notice the cement slabs on your left. The is a LARGE grouping of tree trunks (6) with many smaller trees in front...go around to the base of the tree grouping. (We planted in the winter, but during the summer, the smaller trees should provide plenty of cover for finding this box.) There you will find a cut log at the base of the grouping. Your prize waits beneath.

First finder prize included along with certificate.

We hope you enjoy this box...take the time to check out the park and visitors center. Please provide us with the status of this box.

Happy hunting,
