In late-May I tried to find the Noire 5050 cache with Darin. In geocaching terms, this is a 5/3, but after two attemps to find it (one of which was successful), I think it’s more like a 3/4 or 3/4.5. But I digress…

When we headed out in May, we got within 2 or 3 km of the cache at which point we could proceed no further because the road was washed out.

We headed out to find it Saturday afternoon armed with the knowledge that there was probably another way into the cache from the north. Following a logging road in, we arrived at the point where it was washed out to find that the road had been repaired. Cool!

Driving along the road, we came to a narrow trail that the GPSr was telling us we had to go down. Following the trail, we eventually came across the rapids near the cache site and quickly found the cache itself. Taking the mandatory pictures and swapping some cache goodies, we made our way back out. There are a few scuffs and scratches from the branches, but they’ll probably (hopefully!) buff out with some white polish.
