Hey all, I've been travelling around the country visiting National Parks, graduate schools, and of course geocaching. I'm from Erie, PA so what better place to hide a Northwest Cache then on Mt. Erie (props to PB & J, without the Mt. Erie Climb I would have had no idea this place existed).

This is a "scavenger cache" and the vast quantity of it is made up of items, I've gotten (scavenged) from other caches across the North half of the US during my travels. The cache is tucked into a little crevice/overhang. It's a shoebox sized tupperware container and is covered by a white and green don't pollute trash bag that I "borrowed" from one of the state parks. It's hidden behind some moss and sticks that I found lying around.
The best way to get this cache is to enjoy the hike from the parking lot below. I highly recomend doing it this way. Otherwise you could drive up to the top as well. As with the Mt. Erie, climb be careful. THIS CAN BE A DANGEROUS CLIMB and people have died on these cliffs. So please use your head and be careful. That being said there are several relatively safe paths to take to the cache. I explored several of them after placing the cache to check it out and only found on that I decided was not a good way to go. So if you get into an iffy sitation, go back and attack it from a different way. I took 6 readings and averaged them to get the coordinates so they should be relatively on the elevation I got (although my etrex venture isn't great on elevation) was around 1180. I'll be putting pictures of the cache up that are definate spoilers but that won't be til I get home at the end of October. Till then I really can't say much more to help.

Unfortunately I've gotten emails indicating that the cache is missing. Guess it had to happen sooner or later. It's a shame though, wish I at least had the log book.
