View of Raven Glacier from near the cache site

“As the Raven Flies” (GC1E3Qc) takes geocachers into the wilds of Chugach National Forest in Alaska, USA.   Kmags & Ak4me placed the cache in July of 2008.  It’s rated a 1.5 difficulty with a four terrain.  Adventurers must to hike to Crow Pass with an elevation of 3500 feet to find the small-sized cache.

The location offers a bird’s-eye view of Raven Glacier. It’s rated a four for a reason.  The hike is challenging.

Only ten geocachers have logged a smiley for this geocache.  The logs are a testament to the power of the view and the location of this cache.

One log reads, “Awesome view. I have hiked this trail many times and have never seen the glacier, always socked in with clouds. Today was awesome with partly cloudy skies and enough of a breeze to keep the bugs at bay. We had lunch right by the cache and soaked in some rays.”

    I never got a reply last time, so I’ll ask the same question again….

    Is there a bookmark list for all the Geocaches of the Week on geocaching.com? If so, can you direct me to the link? If not, Might be a good idea ;-)
