How Geocaching Works

This cache is located near a recent flowage restoration site. It is a winter friendly micro that has some bling.
Having almost a year under the belt GeoCachin' now, we figured it was about time to take some of the things we've (Snyder Bear Team) saw and learned and experienced over the year, and employ these towards a few cache sites local to us.
First off, we most generally found that most caches are either at the top of the highest points or at the lowest level of a wet area - either that or it drew attention to something mystical or beautiful that caused the placer to be in that area in the first place. So we set off to offset this (huh?) just a bit with some easy caches in the area that draws attention to only natural areas within our lovely Black River State Forest. This cache has a parking area that is easily reached by vehicle for the most part initially, but I wouldn’t actually call it easy to reach if you’re not accustomed to enjoying backwoods roads in all their glory. We can reach the area with a family van, so if you think positive, you can save yourself alot of hiking. Also, this cache doesn't really have anything significant or attractive to look at initially, unless you enjoy nature at it's finest. Located within site of this cache, you will see an abundance of flora and fauna that could potentially amaze you. Don't forget your binoculars and cameras. This part of the Forest really has a diversity of wildlife ranging from wolf, deer, bear, turkey, small game, and a wide variety of waterfowl that will impress the most avid of bird watchers.
In the coming months, I’ll likely be doing some research on the various flowages and update the cache site pages, but we wanted to get them going this summer as well, SO HERE WE GO THEN . . .
One thing I can assure you on your visit to this flowage cache - you will run into an abundance of mosquito. So take stock of your insect repellent, and have fun visiting our neck of the woods…
