Geocache Description:

WGA Cache of The Month - January, 2010

****1/2 - Requires specialized equipment, knowledge, experience, or trait (PERSEVERANCE) or is otherwise extremely difficult. When you want to get somewhere, you get yourself there.


Team Outcast

I've delivered packages back and forth across the Eagle River Chain for ten years now. I always wondered what the headwaters looked like. Now I know.

Cache is a plastic box that my son had gotten for me from a garage sale. (He kept the army toys that were in it.) This box is in a larger, bungee-corded wooden box.

We drove in from Hiles, the last half mile of road was snowmobile trail - maybe extra hiking in some weather conditions. We hiked about three quarters of a mile, one way, through a bit of highland forest, a cedar swamp, low brush swamp, and finally sedge hummocks - I would suppose made immeasurably easier due to the frigid conditions. (I wonder how possible this will be in warmer weather.)

There is a road from the west, through corporate timberlands, that may take you to a similar hiking distance.
