What is an Earth Cache?

Even some regular geocachers might wonder what is an earth cache?

A typical geocache is a container – often an “lock N lock” plastic box – that contains a log, maybe some swag, maybe a travel bug or two. But what if the geocache won’t fit in a container?

For example, what if the geocache is the top of Mount Everest?

That’s a bit excessive for most of us geocachers, yet the point we are trying to make is – what natural phenomenon around where you live is beautiful, unusual, unique to your area, and worth bragging about, as far as you are concerned? What is an Earth Cache? It is all of these.
