7 Souvenirs of August

View Geocache Log

Found it Trekkin' and birdin' found 52-Pickup - WWF #29 (Smalley Falls)

Wednesday, October 03, 2012Wisconsin

This would be my last day of my journey to glorious fall color, waterfalls, a charming bed and breakfast and great northwoods caches, so I started it off right by waiting until the dense fog was beginning to burn off, lingering over coffee with my innkeeper friends, then heading out here. The county has done a wonderful job of highlighting their abundant waterfalls with great signage, so the nuvi was mostly redundant, and often actually wrong. I pulled in to an empty parking area and began my hike through the woods and over the rocky trails, awaiting the now-familiar sound of water rushing across rock. It wasn't long before I heard that, along with the Raven's croak and many chattering Red Breasted Nuthatches that were more than willing to come down close and give me a better look. The cache was found quickly, so I could enjoy exploring the falls, basking in the warming sunlight and taking in the real prize here, which was not the cache, but the location. The Lil' Otter understood how to place a cache to get you there, then let you enjoy where you ended up. Thanks Barry for keeping all of these gems alive.

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.
