We were on vacation and had to get this cache. We found the history of Mellen very interesting. At first we wrote down the wrong information and went to the wrong coordinates. We discovered our error and soon arrived at the correct coordinates. After short search, we found the cache, but it was in solid ice. We had a very kind person, who knew about the cache, help us chip away at the ice. We got the cache free enough, to sign the log and record the smiley. This earns a favorite from us.
