As a former gold rush area, it’s fitting that Plumas County has become such a popular spot for geocaching. In the same way that forty-niners caught the fever, so have modern day geocachers.
The recreational activity is gaining more and more popularity in Plumas County, with additional caches popping up all the time. Currently, there are more than 3,000 caches in Plumas County just waiting to be discovered.
“It’s really a blast,” said Valerie Grammer, geocaching enthusiast. Grammer started geocaching about six months ago and now does it nearly every weekend. “It’s really addicting. Once you find your first cache, you’re hooked.”
