Found it Trekkin' and birdin' found Daves Falls "Elf" Cache

Wednesday, October 03, 2012Wisconsin

Oh, do I remember this park! We have really only cached this opposite corner of the state one other time, back in March of 08 trying to finish up the DeLorme Challenge. We came here with a good foot of snow and icy trails confronting us as we tried to find "Lettermen Tripped," digging it out of all the snow and ice. My visit today was very different. There were a few other people just leaving as I arrived, and I heard the distinctive knocking of a Pileated Woodpecker in the pines above the picnic area. One of those people was looking the same direction, a camera in hand, so I waited, knowing how tough it can be to capture one of those guys. The woodpecker sailed away over the ridge and out of sight, we chatted a bit, then I headed past that rock wall with the other cache down to the river. This was another of those caches placed to let you find it easily so you could enjoy the beautiful area, which is what I went on to do. Hiked to the upper falls. Hiked to the lower falls. Sat above the lower falls. Went down below them. Just sat high on a rock and enjoyed the sunshine, pleasant temperatures and the sounds only of nature, plotting a return sometime to explore more of the northeast corner of our wonderful state.

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.
