Geocache Description:


This is a traveling cache and its goal is to see as much of the Adirondack Park as possible. When you find the cache pick it up and take it with you to rehide in a new location anywhere in the Adirondack Park, but please lets keep it in the park and on public property.

When you pick it up build a small tepee of sticks so others looking for it will know it's gone. On the same note if you are looking for the cache and find a tepee of sticks you will know someone has already picked it up.

As soon as possible log that you found and have it so others will know not to go looking for it.

Place in its new location soon afterwards and post a note on the web page with the new coordinates and I'll enter them as the new location. Also put in the note any special directions or hints to help others find the cache. Lets make it easy enough to find but not where it will get vandalized. When selecting a place please do not place it on any mountain summit nor in the Western or Eastern high peaks regions zone B and C on the map below.

You may log this cache more than once but it must have been moved at least twice between your logs.

About the Adirondack Park

The Adirondack Park is six-million acres in size and is bigger than the State of Vermont. The Adirondack Park contains a checkerboard of publicly owned Forest Preserve lands (2.5 million acres), conservation easements owned by the state (250,000 acres), and private lands (3.2 million acres).

The Adirondack Park is renown for its wild landscape of mountains, water and forests. The Park has 46 peaks over 4,000 feet, eleven with rare alpine summit vegetation, and some 1,500 peaks over 1,000 feet. Water resources abound: 2,800 lakes and ponds, 35,000 miles of streams, over one million acres of wetlands. There are over 5.5 million acres of forests in the Adirondacks, of which 500,000 acres are eastern old growth.



NYhiker has created a nice map showing all the locations the Adirondack Traveler has visited.  She even included the one time it wandered out of bounds.  I was always going to make such a map but never got to it.  Thanks NYhiker, I'm sure others will enjoy seeing your map as much as I do so I'm adding it to the cache page.
