Note to editor: Had some trouble getting a good reading due to the terrain and forest. The reading kept changing and would never settle down. Any suggestions in the future? This was a first. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This was done by Gary Short (Baranof)

I am thrilled to be the first to place a GeoCache in Alaska. Considering the size of our state that's paramount to being the first to place a cache west of the Mississippi River. The cache has been placed in the Alexander Archipelagos on Baranof Island near the community of Sitka. Since we have only twelve miles of road that'll limit the driving. Start your quest at the Sawmill Creek Campground. Cross the footbridge over the creek and your odyssey commences. This is a level #1 walk of no more than a quarter mile. Since the only open ground around here is the airport you are in a dense forested area. Trees over a hundred feet surround you. Look sharp, something unexpected is in the trees above you. Your GPS readings fluctuate a bit due to the size of the trees and the effects of the tight canyon. The GeoCache is in a white four inch by eighteen inch sewer pipe, (never used ;>). It's in plane view from over 100 degrees. Hint: It's in this dense forest at the base of one of the hundreds of century old trees. Among other things in the cache is a piece of native art. Happy hunting.
