Found it Trekkin' and birdin' found Pembine Fire Tower

Wednesday, October 03, 2012Wisconsin

This is indeed an interesting little backwoods area, with the inexplicable structure near parking, the crowing of a rooster down below and all the regular trappings of the northwoods. Not "Dueling Banjos" country at all, unless the residents are excellent players, which would be lots of fun to hear. Trekkin', as our profile mentions, can even play a bit of that tune on his banjo! The hike up to the top was nice as the morning was still a little crisp and I spotted some cool mushrooms not far from the tower remnants. I noted the old footings and tried to locate the actual benchmark, but it may be too leaf-covered for detection right now. It's amazing how quickly nature took hold once the tower was let go. Fire towers, or sites where one once stood, are always worth the time to explore, since the views offered are amazing. Thanks for bringing me to this one. SL TNLN TFTC

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
