Call the crew! You need to assemble your best geocaching team to capture the daunting terrain 5 cache at ‘Treasure Island.’ In the middle of the meandering Potomac River between Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Shepherdstown, West Virginia, sits three weathered stone pillars of what appears to be remnants of an old bridge.

What appears to be a mirage is real: seven towers, each about 30 feet tall, assembled from enormous boulders stacked on top of one another and painted in contrasting fluorescent colors. And, of course, there’s a geocache there. Continue reading →
