Geocache Description:


Albuquerque's third "Big Eye" awaits your visit! (The other two for out-of-towners: the intersection of I-40/I-25 (Big I), and an adult store off of I-25). Park at the Albuquerque Open Space parking lot (N35 04.758/W106 29.070) at the eastern end of Copper (east of Tramway, just north of Tramway and I-40) Hike south-southeast .54 miles towards the saddle between the two lowest hills in this direction. From the saddle (N35 04.303/W106 28.936), hike east-northeast up the trail that generally follows the ridgeline. The Big Eye will be obvious as you approach it, about one mile from the saddle at 7224'. Coordinates are for the Eye; the Tupperware cache is under the 6' pine tree around behind the Eye. This trail is sometimes hard to follow and can be a bit strenuous in spots. If you get lost, just maintain your climb up the ridgeline, the trail will reappear. On the descent, a right fork at N35 04.374/W106 28.209 will take you to the parking lot as well. The trail also continues northeast to the Schedule 40 cache, but involves a rock scramble at one point (not recommended for dogs). As always, watch for snakes, cactus, and loose scree!
