Campin' Ya Ya: I hate to archive this cache as there aren't many around that one can do from the water, but I just don't have the time to maintain this one. If someone wants to adopt it, that would be great.
Thanks to all who stopped by and sorry the terrain #5 is gone.

Geocache Description:

You’ve probably done some drive-by caches. Here’s your chance for a float-by cache.


You’ll need a canoe or kayak for this cache located on Eagle Lake in Holden. You will find parking at these coordinates: N 42 21.475, W071 53.064. You can put in at the beach. Holden Recreation Passes are required should you choose to use the beach for swimming; they are $5 per resident or $10 for folks from out of Holden. They are not required for canoeing and kayaking.

The area to the west of the lake is Eagle Lake Wildlife Sanctuary. Its 175 acres of woodland are home to hundreds of species, including fishers, pileated woodpeckers, river otters, barred owls, muskrats, and many types of waterfowl. A three-mile marked trail loops through forests of oak, pine, and hemlock and skirts meandering Asnebumskit Brook. See if you can tell where the brook empties into the lake..

The Mom in me reminds you to bring your PFD, sunscreen and water!!

There is no need to get out of your canoe or kayak at the cache site. Please be careful to keep it dry and please place it back just how you found it. And don't forget to bring a pen or pencil. The cache container is too small to fit one in. Thanks!
