Geocache Description:

Located on a historic dock in a gold rush town.

In the late 1800's it became a tradition that the first time a ship arrived at this port, the captain would paint the name of his ship on the cliff at dockside. This tradition continues even today. It looks like now, every time a new captain arrives-even if it's a ship that is already on the cliff, they commemorate it with a new sign.

The earliest date I could find on the cliff was 1928, but there is a sign on the dock that shows older ships names, I will post a photo of it when I get my photo developed and scanned. To post this as a find answer this one question. What was the last name of the Sun Princesses Captain when the ship arrived in July of 1983?

We were here on a cruise of Alaska and the only cache we could find was The Mendenhall Treasure Trove cache in Juneau. If you don't hit that area or don't have time to visit it, try this one out.
