Chambers Island, Door County, WI

The Geocats and family members got their first first-to-find after boating out to Chambers Island in the middle of Lake Michigan's Green Bay. (Click map to enlarge.) Each year in June, the family gathers for a week's vacation in Door County, Wisconsin. This year we took advantage of the warm weather with a boat ride out to the island.

The sky was a brilliant blue and the sun was shining. The water was flat, and warm enough for a swim - rare for this far north in Lake Michigan. We had to take care of the many shoals in the area, skirting the north point of Chambers Island by more than a mile. Death's Door is close by, so boaters beware! The water was so clear, however, the shallows were easy to spot.

We beached the boat in the cove on the island's north shore. The sand beach provided a great place to toss the Frisbee around. After a bit of play, we started or search for the cache. And although it should have been easy to find, inexperience with the GPS and over-looking the obvious made it a challenge. Matt, lower right in the photo, was the actual finder.

Update on Chambers Island: Another cache was placed on the island last September. Next summer, we are so there!
