Geocache: NFA-4 Wildlife Bog Apr. 15th, 2004 @ 04:23 pm
nfa_js
Geocache Location: N 44° 20.761 W 074° 10.173
A nice walk through mixed ecosystems to a wonderful wildlife-filled boggy area.
There are numerous approaches to get to this cache, all are beautiful walks. The cache itself is in the middle of a spectacular boggy area overflowing with wildlife. I love the colors you see in this kind of environment.
The cache container is a one gallon translucent plastic jar with a white lid. It is not in plain view, but should be easy enough to find for experienced geocachers. This geocache should be possible in all 4 seasons, although the degree of difficulty will be higher in particularly cold or snowy times of the year. The geocache has a logbook, pencil & sharpener, and the following treasures:
Survival Whistle
Carabiner
Lighter
Radio
Corkscrew
Crayons
Animals
Candle
NFA Coin
Buffalo Nickel
Steel 1943 Penny

Geocache: NFA-3 A Dam, Nice Walk Apr. 15th, 2004 @ 04:00 pm

Geocache Location: N 44° 24.261 W 074° 11.439

A nice longish walk ending with a short bush-whack.
There are 3 probable starting points for the approach to this cache, all are about the same distance from the cache. The walk in is mostly along powerline right-of-ways, and is level and a pleasant walk through some nice forest and bog country. This cache could be buggy in the summer months

Geocache: NFA-2 Backwoods Apr. 14th, 2004 @ 10:03 am

Geocache Location: N 44° 22.337 W 074° 11.967
This cache is a couple of hundred yards off the trail, requiring relatively easy bushwhacking.
The walk into this cache takes you through some lovely woods and tamarack and spruce bog. In wet season, you should wear boots, and plan on getting damp. There are lots of falldowns and trees growing out of the stumps of long-dead trees. If you visit the cache May through July, you should probably have some bug-dope.

Geocache: NFA-1 Moose Pond Apr. 13th, 2004 @ 08:03 am

Geocache Location: N 44° 22.175 W 074° 04.158
A 2-3 mile hike, round trip, over generally level terrain. The cache can also be reached by canoe or kayak.
This cache can be easily reached from 2 starting points. I parked at N 44° 22.528, W 074° 05.225, and walked in to the cache. Alternately you can park at 44° 22.73'N, 74° 03.58'W and either canoe/kayak or ski/snowshoe (depending on the state of the water when you are out geocaching).
Either way, there is a secondary waypoint you have to visit either before or after you find the cache: N 44° 22.185, W 074° 04.126. This is a spectacular picnic or swimming spot, with a great view of the pond and mountains on the other side.
From the parking lot, you cross the Saranac River and quickly enter the woods. The walk in through the woods is lovely, mixed open forest with lots of wildlife. The terrain is easy enough for most young children, with the opportunity for side trips offered by the rocks to climb and valleys to explore and a trail continuing around much of the pond.
