2006 - Lair (GC5D2D)

Lair (GC5D2D) by ka0atu

My brother Chad and I took a break from turkey hunting today and decided to go hunt for this historical cache.  Driving up the Minimum Maintenance Forest Road was no problem for our high clearance vehicle as we found parking near the trail gate, which is as close as you're going to get while driving.  The hike to the top took quite the effort but knowing what was in store above made it all worth it.

Upon arrival, we tiptoed our way into the opening slowly as there are rumors that critters have been known to camp out inside..  big critters.. as in mountain lions and bobcats.  Luckily, the Lair was vacant for us today and we were able to explore around at our liesure.  We scored the geocache with little bother and took some time to run through the historical logbook.

Once we were finished within the cave, we headed for the summit to check out the view.  Spectacular.  The majestic view was gorgeous and the only thing that could have made it better was if summer were upon us rather than the drab, brown, look of spring.
