Crew: It’s really tough to archive this one. Smell the Roses has a great history and is probably the best cache that the Wadel and Crew team has hidden. But alas, life can’t be just caches & roses all the time. Congratulations to everyone who found it! I believe Smell the Roses is one of the most logged caches on the Palouse. And the truly amazing thing about this cache is how it speaks for the attitude of Pullman in that it was found by so many non-Geocachers, and yet never plundered.

With that said (and a small tear in my eye), find all the caches you can and hide some more good ones!

Geocache Description:

WSU is heading to Pasadena again!!! To celebrate, we decided to hide this cache in honor of the 2002-03 Cougar football team. GO COUGS!!!

This cache is located in a large tupperware container. It is a short, easy walk. Watch out for muggles during daylight since it is a popular place to walk. This would be a good one to do at night as well. Original contents of the cache are:
  • Cougar pom-pom
  • Cougar mug
  • Free latte card for the Bookie
  • Cougar football
  • Copy card for WSU Libraries (13 copies left)
  • Cougar football pin
  • Butch the Travel Bug
  • Cougar cheer stix
  • WSU static sticker
**Cache Update: January 15, 2006** It has been three years since the Cougars made it to the Rose Bowl, but we still remember! To celebrate, we upgraded the “Smell The Roses” cache box to an ammo can, and replaced the contents with entirely new exciting and dry prizes. There has never been a better time to stop by and “Smell The Roses!” Have Fun and Go Cougs!!
