BRING YOUR OWN INK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are a few geocaches in the Winter Harbor area as well to find....
If you live in the area or just visiting... this is a spot you MUST visit. It's not too far from Bar Harbor, about an hour to an hour and a half drive from bar Harbor depending on traffic. There are several interesting places to stop and see along to way. Like, the reversing falls, and the beautiful old houses and churches in the old fishing towns along the way, along with a few wonderful places to stop and eat, like Chippers in Hancock and the Fisherman's Inn in Winter harbor.
Keep your pets on a leash and watch smaller childeren at all times!!! This box is in a wonderful spot with beautiful views all around, but there are lots of big rocks to climb on after finding this box (if you wish).
