Geocache Description:

A chance to explore the Sandia Mountain where you may not have been before. Going up to 8230 feet. Not bad climbing.

Very unique container. Compliments of my friend Dave S. Not many people will have seen one of these unless they have spent time in the Navy. Use area fee required: $3 Pay before you get to the trailhead (N35 13.374, W106 29.007).

If you want some great views go onto: N35 14.748 W106 29.202
This will turn this into a 5 for terrain.
