Geocache Placed – Copegog Island

Parry Sound Power and Sail Squadron’s second GeoBayCache has been placed and confirmed on Copegog Island. It’s officially Cache #8.

The cache coordinates are:

This is the same as:
45º 15.14220′
-080º 12.04860′

Depending on whether you are using a Degrees/Minutes or Degrees format.

As with the Huckleberry Island Cache there is a government dock, in this case co-sponsored with the Wasauksing Band, so there won’t be wet feet. The cache itself is on the other side of the island from the dock, less than a 100 meters away, and not really hidden. The idea of the program is to provide boaters with an opportunity to explore new spots in the Georgian Bay Biosphere.

There seems to be lots of water this year, so there shouldn’t be too many surprises if you follow the charted routes. But be careful on the water and on the islands, you are likely to come across poison ivy and the protected Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake. Neither should be a concern if you keep your eyes and ears open and your hands to yourself.
