Found it 5Savages found ROCKY TOP

Saturday, August 13, 2005Minnesota

My 100th find!!! How appropriate that this milestone be reached at such a beautiful spot. TBoneTpr & I read the logs and description and decided to take the western approach. It turned out to be the right choice. The climbing was easy, but very fun. As we scrambled up the hill, finding the cache quickly became secondary. The view from the top and the characteristic of the land were fantastic! We even saw a fresh deer rub on a tree as we walked back down.

I was pretty shocked to find such a great spot in this part of the state. I agree with TBoneTpr, that this is the best cache site in Minnesota that I've been to so far. When I see how few visits this site had gotten I just have to shake my head. Cachers that decide not skip this one because of the road description are missing out. A 4x4 is not needed for this road if one drives carefully. The depth of the creek is a question mark, though if you park off to the side at that point it's not much farther to walk to the cache site.

A HUGE thanks for this one!!! Took an army man, left a Hard Rock Cafe 30th Anniversary pin. I was going to save that pin for one of King Boreas' rock music related caches, but it seemed appropriate to put it in Rocky Top.

On the way back to Redwood Falls, I highly recommend the malts at the Dari King, on the main drag, on the north side of the street. The vanilla malt I had there was the BEST malt I've ever had!! They can't spell "dairy", but they CAN make an awesome malt!

Here's an interesting story about this site:

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.
