Before 2010, when a visiting (or new) cacher asked, "Which caches in the Seattle area should I do" or "What are the best day trips," these were the caches most often mentioned. Some were considered rites of passage for local cachers.

Then Favorites came along, even cooler caches came out, and this list became obsolete. But now the caches are oldies! And amazingly, only two of the caches have been archived.

And don't miss lunch at the Mad Crab in Coupeville!
