Ascent Trip Report

Many thanks to the friendly and welcoming Erkkila family for allowing highpointers and geocachers on their property. We drove up their long driveway (#3755, red paint on rocks at entrance on North Creek Road), parked near the barn, and after a brief chat with (presumably) Mrs. Erkkila at the neraby house, we walked up the field to the woods, and found the ammo box register/geocache on the prominent wooded ridgecrest. The register in a plastic bag was hopelessly waterlogged. I left a piece of paper in a new bag as a start to a new register.
