TUG ME




The plastic peanut butter jar is hidden just
north of the turning basin that was used by many ships that made a call in the Port of Rochester. The larger ships would off load their cargo then continue on up river to be turned around so they could head back out into the lake, this usually required the assistance of a Tug boat to help maneuvered the ship around in the basin. If you begin your hunt at Turning Point Park, located at the end of Boxart Street, be sure to view Brown Falls (North Falls) which is about 27'  high, on your way to the cache. Depending on your approach the terrain will have a moderate elevation change. The Turning Point area can always use some clean up help, so please bring a bag with you and cache out.

What a nice day for a walk!
Started out from Turning Point and took in Brown Falls along the way, then hopped down the tracks a bit toward the cache. Soon I was in my usual position above the cache looking for an easy way down. Found the easiest way by sliding down in the mud, so two looooooong footprints are the only trace I left! Found the cache right where it should be, well concealed but not tough to find. Signed my name - I really do need to get a stamp made - and made my way up the mudslide. Great views all along the way, and I especially liked the spooky tree I slid past toward the end. Thanks for a great hide! I'll visit this area as often as possible.
