Geocache Description:

Each year for the past few years, my family and my sister's family have gotten together in the San Rafael Swell on Easter so we could have an Easter egg hunt for our kids. This year, we chose Box Flat because we knew that, due to the rough road into the area, we could avoid the hordes of people who go camping in the Swell on Easter weekend.

This was my third trip to Box Flat in the past two months, and I'm really beginning to love this place. The road is extremely rough, and you need a high-clearance 4x4, ATV, dirt bike, or your own two feet to get there. The Box Flat road forks, and both forks dead-end at the wilderness study area boundary, but from there there are plenty of hiking opportunities into some amazing and solitary country.

The cache is on the top of a knoll of Navajo Sandstone which could possibly be difficult to get up onto. The sides of the knoll are mostly vertical, but there's one place where you can scramble up to the top using your hands and feet. Once on top, look for the cache underneath a small overhang and covered by some rocks. The view from on top is nice--you can see all of Box Flat, and also Jackass Flat and many areas beyond.
