“Arngast” GC1JC94 GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – April 25, 2011


Discover a lost island in Germany while attempting to claim a smiley on the EarthCache “Arngast” (GC1JC94).

Geocacher Keitaro64 created the difficulty 2.5, terrain 4.5 EarthCache in August of last year. The cache page describes the adventure like this, “The walk starts on land that once was sea and leads into the sea, which once was land.”

Geocachers walk their way across salt meadows and tidal flats. Geocachers eventually navigate their way to the remain of Arngast island. The land, along with a dozen small villages, was claimed by the sea after centuries of flooding.  The hiking tour covers six waypoints. Geocachers must answer questions about the location to claim a smiley.
