My wife is visiting Duluth on business for two days in the middle of an intense snow event. What centrally-located caches can be found in the snow? We're looking for caches that are above ground level (perhaps lamp post caches?) or indoors -- a "log book in a library" cache would be ideal.

Also, she'd like to cross the state line and find a cache in Wisconsin, so recommendations for anything just over the line and out of the snow would be welcome.

Thanks!

We do have four lamppost caches (although I've heard rumors that they may get archived, but that's a whole different story). I can't immediately recall any indoor caches.

When is she coming? Currently we don't have enough snow on the ground to be of concern for caching, with nothing significant forecasted.

Neat that you point that out. I was thinking of physical caches, not the webcam cache.

I'm waiting though to see who points out the obvious here. Smile

Hmm... Would that be "GCGMGH Clayton, Jackson & McGhie" ?

Nope... Although that is another winter-friendly one for sure!
