ERIE'S END By MrMom, MrsMom and Goo. 2 June, 2002
N42*53.712 W078*54.319

This cache is part of our Upper Niagara River Series; the peaceful side of The Niagara. The series begins with "ERIE'S END" ( upstream ) followed by "FISH'S SPAWN" and ends with "THE OTHER SISTER." The entire Upper Niagara Series follows clear and level paths and is well suited for the family. For a challenge, please visit our Lower Niagara River Gorge Series. The lower series begins at the Northern end of the river ( downstream ) with "RAPID ART" followed by "A DEVIL OF A HIKE" and ends with "RAW POWER!" Don't forget your camera. All caches take you through Western New York's most picturesque river and lake views. My seven year old daughter completed all hikes with minimal complaints. All readings were taken with a Garmin 176c and a Garmin III. Averaged accuracy's are better than 30 feet.

The cache is a three part multicache. All parts are off of Niagara St. With free parking nearby. Part one requires a three mile round trip on a very easy hike. In parts two and three you can drive up to within .1 Mi. of the point and cache. Please read both sides of the sign at the final cache location. The swampy area straight ahead is all that's left. Park and start near N42*54.907 W078*54.176 Your first point is at N42*53.712 W078*54.319, a sunset delight. Round trip is under 3 miles. The cache name "ERIE'S END" can be applied two times at point one, again directly underneath a large foot bridge near point two, and at the cache location. The peaceful side of The Mighty Niagara awaits you.

Catching up on some long overdue Navicache logs. This is probably my all time favorite cache!

Found the first leg a few days earlier, and finished today. Was thwarted by muggles at the 2nd leg. There's always going to be muggles there, but it was punks the first time. So I just went for it today knowing I'd just have to explain geocaching to someone yet again :-). Great cache Mom's, I TNLN, thanks.

This was a very nice multi-cache, enjoyed the walk down the break-wall.

Completed this cache on an early morning hike with minimal difficulty. We certainly enjoyed the hike on a balmy summer morning and picked up a bunch of fishing tips on the way out to stage one.

My only find for the day. Certainly got my workout walking to all the cache locations! Was kinda worried about getting over to location #2, but I survived. Thanks for the fantastic multi. TNLNSL.

Teamed up with **floorestius** today, for some, long awaited, caching along the Niagara River. We picked a nice day, the sun was shining and the wind was down. This started out (2nd of 7), and ended (3rd of day) working our way down river. I can’t believe how low the river is this time of year. The first part of this cache is another good old fishing hole of mine. It makes me wonder, if I shouldn’t start carrying my fishing gear  while caching. While at the first part, we could here the ice flows breaking as they melted, flowing by us. I finally, used my cache sheet that was printed back on 01/15/03. Can you say –long ago--. Well, now I can say Huckle Buckle on this one. Yes, we read the sign, and I even took pics of it. Thanks for the great hike, views, history, and find. Cache is in good shape. T/0 L/log Strikeforce1 **out-and-about**.

Had a great time doing this cache. Was out with the fishermen watching the sun rise. Beautiful morning. Had no problems finding cache...though I spent a little time finding one of the sets of coordinates...too many people...had to be discrete. TNLNSL.
Thanks for the morning workout.

We finally made it back to Buffalo to finish the series. The trek to the first part of this cache was great. A steady headwind added to the adventure. Part 2 took a little time to find, kept walking right past it. Found part 3 with no problems. Took nothing, left nothing.

Excellent job if we must say so ourselves! We've come to the conclusion that you people
really like to walk. Thank god we do too!! We had grown up in this neighborhood and it was
great to get back into town again. Upon reaching our first destination we were a little
baffled...Only until we really opened up our eyes that is. As we walked back shaking our
heads and grinning, we had hoped we had enough time to complete all the tasks. But then
again, what is time when you're having this much fun. Upon reaching our second destination
I examined the area while 3 or 4 fisherman looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe that's
prerequisite for this madness, I'm not too sure!! I explained what I was doing and they
decided not to beat me up..Onward and upward... We found the cache at 8:15, 2 hours and 15
minutes from the start of this exciting adventure. We had a great time on both of your caches
today and hope to get back and do more of yours in the very near future. Thanks for a great
way to finish up our day.

Hey! So we really maxed out this day! It started out with Eversures 4th soccer game of the season which was to follow with the soccer picnic but we decided that caching was more to our liking and off we went......ended the day at the cave of the winds...Just the best all around!!

We've done almost 90 caches now and have never been to one like this! The sun was shinning the breeze was most wonderful (almost felt like we were back in NC near the ocean) and the trail couldn't have been more direct...Foo the wonder dog was with us....she looked like an explosive red fur ball what with all the wind.....and she fancied herself as the trail blazer...Imagine a 6 pound pomerain pulling a 5th grader...

Anyway, we met the Maeder Boys and Mom at the first leg (What a great bunch of cachers they are)......I think we did some stone work for them...Fearless and Eversure were mighty found of the crevases that were around ;). but eventually we spotted what we were looking for and were off to the second leg......the Maeder Boys beat us there.....I found out that once near a cache you have to recal. the V to off road...It had us 6 miles away.......Fearless says the III+ was right on.

Anyway found the second leg as a joint team and then hung back and waited for the boys and MOm to finish.....Hey it almost felt like the great race....and we weren't first......but then I believe we traded out some of the stuff they left so all in all it was the best strategy.... :)

Cache was in great shape but the mosquitos were massing future cachers may want to wear eau..da..bug spray before entering the woods.....Foo had on her citronella bark collar so that worked......

We took...Mouth Spray (Butterfly Girl says thanks she is sure that the spray helps her breath better), a set of dice (Eversure was smiling at those) and a book light (Sweety is reading with it even as I type). In there place we left a Topsy tumble doll (put her on her head and she does a summer sault), a ceramic heart box, and a large ty turtle with tag....

Thanks for the adventure.....but must say a few were grumbeling at the end of the first we chose to do the Other sister cache for brevity sake and to keep em caching
