Geocache Description:


There are only 54 active Wigwags remaining in the United States.

When I hid this cache in 2010, there were 68 remaining, so they are disappearing at the rate of 7 per year.

Look straight down the sidewalk from the cache, about 320 ft to the East, and you can see one of the 54.

What is a Wigwag, you may ask?

And, lastly but not leastly, someone has put a video on youtube of this wigwag in action. You can find it here:

Enjoy the day.
