Geocache Description:

A little waypoint on Independence Mountain to hopefully get more cachers to the top.

So, I placed McShepardSons on Independence Mountain. Not many people showed up. I thought if I placed a few more caches along the trail, it would attract more traffic. If you can bag more find on the way up, maybe the strenuous hike would not seem so bad. 

This is a big micro or a small small. The container is a yeast vial used for homebrewing. Only not a whole lot of room for anything other than a lot and a pen.

While hiking along this trail, you can pick up the following caches:

Enjoy the hike. Pick up multiple finds on your way to the top. Be sure to visit McShepardSons at the top.

 Congrats to Greasepot and robespierre50, for FTF!

A note on the coordinates ... I used my phone app to get the coordinates. It said plus or minus 15 feet, but sometimes my phone is off by more than it thinks it is. Please let me know if you find the coordinates to be significantly off.
