Description   EN   

This is another in our Welcome to sign series. As geocachers we tend to like to travel. One of the things we do when visiting a new place is stop and take a photo at the "Welcome to" signs. Now this is a series of virtuals.

To claim this cache simply take your photo in front of the sign. Please have your GPS or device in the photo to prevent from old vacation photos. Enjoy and try to get the whole series.

Being the webmaster, and seeing these two recent finds in the latest logs on the site, all I can say is Dang it all! I stopped at this rest area, and even capped a few Munzees on May 24th on the way home from GW. But I had made a last minute decision to go to Morgantown before heading North, and I had no idea this cache was there. It was a very nice rest area, by the way. Laughing

Was driving home from Maryland this afternoon and made this stop along the way.  I can confirm that construction is still going on in front of the Visitor Center and that the sign is still leaning against the building.  Nice place to take a rest break, especially during fall foliage-----Thanks!

Took the 30 minute or so drive west from the MGS Fall Picnic to grab this one while I was in the general area.  Hey, I'll go that extra mile for an OCNA or other alt-cache find.  Been thru this rest stop a few times before.  They are doing some sort of construction and the sign is temporarily leaning against the building.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
