Throughout Johnson County, modern-day treasure seekers search for buried riches in natural nooks and crannies.
They parse Province Park and Craig Park for small boxes and tubes. Armed with specific geographic locations, they flock to rest stops, cemeteries and public places to uncover their caches.
Geocaching is a sport that combines high-tech navigation with old-fashioned hunting and problem solving skills. For its enthusiasts, any place could be hiding a surprise — a log in the woods, a niche in a building, even a camouflaged container sitting in plain site.
