Geocache Description:

The cache is in a standard ammo can. This is about a 0.6 mile walk along a well defined trail with an elevation gain of 420 ft. The location should be visible from the trail. It gets windy and cold here so dress warmly and be aware that there may be a lot of snow, it is at 6031 ft elevaion and may not be available during the winter. While here, enjoy the views.

Original Contents:
  • Log book
  • Pencil and sharpener
  • eraser
  • stuffed lion
  • 3 various keychains
  • Bug Pez
  • Geocaching patch
  • Arthur stickers
  • package of laminating sheets
There are frequently people around as this is a good eagle viewing spot, be casual when searching.

Just down the road to the west from the parking area is a point of interest sign, there is a little pullout on the westbound side, talking about the record cold temperature here. The lowest temperature ever recorded in the contiguous 48 States, -69.7 degrees - rounded off to minus 70 degrees - was observed here on Jan. 20, 1954. It is worth noting that the equipment used to record that temperature was unable to measure any lower so the actual temperature may have been much colder.

Coordinates were checked multiple times approaching from different directions with 9 satellites locked and an error radius of 16ft.

NOTE: Make sure to sign the cache logbook, as online "Found It" logs without a corresponding entry in the logbook will be deleted. We wouldn't want any "cheaters" now would we.
