You do not need to bushwack your way in. This is a seed cache (smaller than a micro, bigger than a nano) from the Barnes Babes Geocache Event in August. Bring your own pencil to sign log.
These are “ancient ruins” of an old homestead. There were once farms in this sandy land that is more suited for forests. The farms dried up in the ’30s and then fell tax delinquent and ended up in the Brule River State Forest. This area was once dominated by Jack Pine plantations which have reached maturity and have been harvested. The area is now growing back to 3rd generation forests.
Look for scraps of metal (barrel straps) and barb wire used as reinforcements in the cement walls.
The Geocache Notification form has been submitted to the land manager of the Brule River State Forest Department of Natural Resources Headquarters of the Wisconsin DNR.
