Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Great State of Tennessee... stop & refresh and consider yourself welcomed! This is a very popular location with lots of people, so please be discreet when you are cache hunting!

Here’s a great place to pull off the highway and take a rest, have a picnic, wet your whistle, water your lily, stretch your legs, walk the dog, feed the squirrels, go for a little hike, do a little bird watching, find a cache or two, or just sit and watch the big ol’ Tennessee River roll by. Covered pavillions, picnic tables, snack & drink machines, restrooms, water fountains, highway maps and area attraction brochures... what more could a traveler ask for?!

If you find a small Rubbermaid container with 'official geocache' label, you’ve probably found the cache! The original contents of this cache are: Log Book & pen, Tennessee 3-Star pin, UPS keyminder & notepad holder, multi-ring keyring set with red LED, 500 piece coral reef puzzle, bottle of Puzzle Saver glue, plastic Patriotic Jet kit plane, and official patch.

This cache is one of the fraternal triplet caches here on the Island. You might find a couple of the caches within hiking distance, but to log all three will take a drive of several miles, or a return trip through this part of the Volunteer State! The Island Welcome caches are placed with a nod to Ya All Come Back Now, Ya Hear! (GCCEF2) by Carolina Moon... another nifty place to sit a spell and take the load off on your travels through these parts.

Enjoy your visit... and Happy Caching!
