Geocache Name:

Table Rock EarthCache (GCMH1C)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

1/1

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Tomorrow marks the 10 year anniversary of EarthCaching—that’s a decade of not only earning a smiley, but also learning more about the bubbling, rock shattering, and often hidden geological processes that shape our Earth. If you feel like celebrating, pay a visit to one of the most favorited EarthCaches in the world (this is the most favorited). Here geocachers will learn how glaciers and erosion formed these magnificent waterfalls known as Niagara falls. One tip: make sure to bring a rain jacket or poncho; otherwise you’ll get soaked from the spray coming off the falls. Consider the soaking a very wet souvenir.

What the geocache owner, Team Tigger International, has to say:

“Firstly Niagara Falls is my favorite place it’s so beautiful and powerful.  We really enjoy Earthcaching because it can be really fun and scientific , plus you get to learn something you may not have known about our Earth. As we visit the beautiful Table Rock area on a regular basis , and find it absolutely fascinating , we thought it was the perfect place to place an earthcache.”

“We really enjoy seeing all the logs on this cache it is one of our most popular that we have placed. We especially love to see all the pictures of this beautiful area.”

What geocachers are saying:

“We spent a great day at Niagara Falls with perfect weather. This is just an absolute amazing place. It was so exciting to see the enormous power of the water running down the falls.” – Orpheos

“Snagged this earth cache on our whim to go to Niagara Falls. So glad we did it – awesome vacation and awesome sights! Ontario was great and everyone was very friendly. TFTC” – tigervhaga

“Thank you for bringing us to this area. The information was very interesting and I’m not sure we would have stumbled upon it by ourselves.” – CeeeKer

    Visited this cache in 2011 after the Mega Event in the USA. Great Earthcache….

    Well, I know of this one geocache in Dover, Delaware- the iCache (GC4AJ5H). These days, iMac G4 monitor screens are made into anything… in this case, a geocache. It’s fairly easy to find, just off in the woods a bit. The screen has the geocaching logo on it, and a lock-n-lock underneath.
