Geocache Description:

Cache is at the crest of a long, bare ridge coming off Bukovic Mountain just north of Sarajevo

Cache has been here since 2004 but has been muggled so there may be no physical container any longer although (see the Hint) there may be. I should transition this into an Earth Cache once I figure out how to do that as the view of Sarajevo from the site is magnificent! Best access is from Nahorevo. At the bus turn around take the right hand road going downhill, keeping the war memorial on your left. Go down, then up, up, up. Stay on the main road (but don't take the asphalt road that goes uphill to the left). Keep the Loviste hut on your left and wind up the mountain to the cache. As this IS Bosnia & Herzegovina you need to BEWARE OF LANDMINES! Most of Bukovic Mountain seems to be mine free (at least we never stepped on one). But DON'T go wandering around off trails any closer to Sarajevo as that was where the front lines were and the nasty things are still around. We've tromped all around the cache site and wandered all over the ridge so things are probably fairly safe...but there is never a guarantee of total safety in Bosnia so be careful.

If you get to the location and find the clump of bushes, give yourself credit. The hike and the view make it well worth the effort!

Finally, look north across the valley and you can see the Mocioci Stecci at N 43 degrees 55.503'; E 018 degrees 26.473'. A long hike for another day.
