Geocache Description:

This is a straight forward single point cache, the challenge is in reaching the site.

The cache is a standard ammo can. Depending on route chosen it is a minimum of about 2.5 miles round trip with about a mile along a trail. You will need to cross several lava flows. One place to begin from is at the Hoffman Island trailhead on the road to Lava Cast Forest.

A palindrome is a set of numbers that are the same when read frontward or backward, so for this set of coordinates:

43 48112 121 18434

The location of this set of coordinates falls near the west edge of a kipuka (area surrounded by younger lava flows) within the 7000 year old Lava Cascades Flow. Be sure to climb up onto the flow and enjoy the view.
