    I had the opportunity to visit this cache while visiting the Northwest for Geowoodstock in 2010. What an incredible experience all around! KayakerinME and I rented a vehicle with the capability to (mostly) make the drive within .6 of the cache (we just needed a LITTLE more clearance!), and enjoyed a beautiful walk the rest of the way – It was gorgeous being up that high (something I don’t get to do on the East coast!) and was wonderful to get to visit such an old and long-lasting traditional geocache.

    So glad to see this one getting the recognition it deserves!
