In Alaska, United States
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache has had the regular access trail closed due to some construction. I am happy to tell you it is back to its old condition. All is good for hunting. Have a great hunt.
I am thrilled to be the first to place a GeoCache in Alaska.
Considering the size of our state that's paramount to being the
first to place a cache west of the Mississippi River. The cache has
been placed in the Alexander Archipelagos on Baranof Island near
the community of Sitka. Since we have only twelve miles of road
that'll limit the driving. Start your quest at the Sawmill Creek
Campground. Cross the footbridge over the creek and your odyssey
commences. This is a level #1 walk of no more than a half mile.
Since the only open ground around Sitka is the airport. You are in a
dense forested area. Trees over a hundred feet surround you. Your
GPS may have trouble getting a lock due to the size of the trees
and the effects of the tight canyon. The cache is in a red 30oz Nalgene water bottle. Search high and search low,
negates the goal you aspire, In between is the way to go, Head
level and no higher. Happy hunting.
