Geocache Description:

The cache is located in Siberia Crater, which is a small cinder-cone on the south side of Route 66 about 17 miles east of Ludlow or 8-10 miles west of the town of Amboy.

Siberia Crater is a small crescent shaped cinder-cone in a cluster of several small volcanoes that erupted about 10 000 years ago.

The crater's location is about 17 miles east of Ludlow or about 8-10 miles west of the town of Amboy on the Historic Route 66 Highway.

The crater is located about 1/10th of a mile on the south side of the highway. Between the two small bridges on Route 66 next to the crater is a faint dirt road. Park here (if you try to drive into the crater you might get stuck in the soft dry sandy wash bed). From the highway you can look right into the crater. It is an easy walk to the crater. Be careful when walking on the lava and watch for any snakes that might be around when the weather is nice. This is probably the easiest crater to get into in all of California and a very nice view looking north out of the "amphitheater like" crater. The very top of the crater, looking west from the cache, is within 5 minutes climb (be careful of your footing).

The cache is in a clear Gladware container containing a logbook and pencil and several small items. Be careful putting your hands into any rock crevices.

To protect the desert plants and the serenity of the area, please do not drive any farther than where the wash crosses the dirt road. Park on the dirt road and walk through the spring wildflowers to the crater opening.
