Geocache Description:

Another pet cache in Vernon Marsh, this one is dedicated to the black Labsdale, 10 yr. old Barkley. This one is located WAY down the hill from Carson's Cache and is a significant hike, especially in the snow. There is parking available off Hwy. I and there can be hunters in the area.

Another pet cache in Vernon Marsh, this one is dedicated to another one of the black Labsdales, 10 yr. old Barkley. This is probably the hardest walk of the bunch, is uphill coming back and will get your heart rate going, especially in the snow.

Barkley is a dog of many nicknames, Brocolli, Black Spy, Rain Dog, to name a few. But she is most known for saving her previous owner's life when he wandered outside in the middle of a freezing February night in MN (he had alzheimer's and got disoriented). Had she not alerted a house-guest, he would have froze to death! Barkley's interest include swimming and car rides with Zipper, aka: Frick and Frack, and she is a ball maniac! Like the other Labsdales, she enjoys doing pet visits to local nursing homes and acts more like a puppy than a senior dog.

There can be hunters in the area, dogs can be off-lead during certain times of the year and there is parking off Hwy. I.

DNR form 2500-118 has been submitted for permission to hide this cache on DNR land.
