    The ice caves on Allagash Lake are part of the "Unique Natural Areas" on the DeLorme's Atlas. If an earthcache was placed there, there would be nothing physical at the site. They can't argue that hordes of cachers will defile the area, it's hard to get to, and already publicly listed on the Atlas for people to visit.
    It certainly wouldn't be the 'drive-by' that the former virtual was, but it would serve as a map 55 cache.

    Good point, Sudonim.

    I think the EarthCache program is exactly the kind of activity that is consistant with the directive that the voters demanded in the 1966 referendum that established the AWW. The ice caves are also a perfect fit for the EarthCache program.

    Anyone up for a 24 mile round trip hike/boat expedition?

    Update: This may be as little as an 8 mile round trip. Anyone up for that?

    The cache has been archived, so you could freely place a new cache there. It is a worthy location. If you do, you may want to make sure the old cache has been removed.

    Good points TAT and Sudonim - EarthCaches would do it - one thing to remember - to publish Earthcaches you need to reference who owns the land, a person and phone number of someone who gives you permission to publish the cache.

    That might be an interesting loop to jump through in that area.

    I have requested to adopt some of the caches because I really enjoyed some of them and because they are so important as examples of early caches in Maine. If anyone else wants to adopt, please let me or aa1yb know.

    If the lands are open to the public and you don't put a physical cache on the land or mark/change the land in any way, why would you need to seek landowner permission? I could be traveling there to see the DeLorme's reference, or heard about the caves from a friend and would be free to go there. Isn't this just a different source of referral to a cool spot that's already open to the public?
    If it is written into the GC rules, than I understand, but is it posted somewhere?

    Guideline #6 EarthCache sites developed on private and public land must have prior approval of the landowners before submission.

    I'm still not sure how visiting a spot to log an earthcache differs from any other visit to the same spot, but it IS in the rules, so I'll shush now
