This update is for our readers who also love geocaching. We found another cool geocache today, Colorado has a lot of geocaches and a lot of them are educational. This one teaches you about Edwin Johnson, he served for 34 continuous years in public service for Colorado. The cache took a little time to find, it was well hidden, so don’t give up on this one. We are about to find our 250th cache soon. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story, information pasted below.
Edwin "Big Ed" Johnson is best remembered by sportsman as one of the originators of the Dingell-Johnson Act. In his home state of Colorado, Johnson remains the only politician to have served three terms as both a Governor and U.S. Senator. As Governor, Johnson created a statewide reorganization and reform movement in the midst of the Great Depression. As a Senator, Johnson was instrumental in the creation of the G.I. Bill of Rights and the Air Force Academy. In 1950 Senator Johnson joined forces with Congressman John Dingell to author the "Federal Aid in Sport Fisheries Restoration Act of 1950." Known fondly as "Dingell-Johnson," this new law helped to halt the decline of North American fisheries and brought new energy to sport fishing across the nation--a magnificent legacy put in place for future generations of American anglers.
