This cache is part of a series intended to showcase Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads (W.R.R.). Wisconsin Legislature established the Rustic Roads program in 1973 to preserve what remains of Wisconsin's scenic, lightly traveled roads.
These caches are usually hidden in the right of way at a spot of notable beauty with no bushwhacking required. Please be respectful of private property, protected lands, and the overall history of the area. Take your time, mind your speed, and most of all… enjoy your journey along the road less traveled.
This particular cache is a bison tube hidden along Rustic Road 61, a paved road also known as County Highway MM. It begins at its intersection with County M and proceeds in a northeasterly direction until its intersection again with State Highway 76. Total length is 3.3 miles. This is probably one of the more populated and busy stretches of Rustic Road in the state.
This road features an interesting combination of historic and scenic features. Many wooded areas, wetlands and agricultural uses adjoin the road’s 3.3 mile course. R61 crosses several streams and stretches along several wetland areas that are part of the Wolf River watershed. Several large white pines grow near this road, often in combination with large stands of trees.
Some friendly tips: There should be a small area just off the cache where you can safely pull over for a park and grab. Be aware of the neighbor muggles...and certainly be aware of any oncoming traffic. Also, my caches are usually always camo'd to fit in with the surroundings in some way, not with duct tape.
