Geocaching Power Island Michigan

Geocache_Power_Island_Michigan_Traverse_City_1200x900Geocaching with Ambitious Charters is a first Class way to Power Island for GC35 and the three additional Caches on the Island.

We had quite a few GeoCachers achieve their Jasmer last year!

This is a very popular two hour charter!

POWER ISLAND HISTORY

Power Island GC35 Geocache 600Power Island Bowers Harbor, West Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City • Call Captain Mike Today 231-360-7500

Formerly known as Marion Island but recently renamed for philanthropist Eugene Power of Ann Arbor, this is a 205-acre island nature preserve in West Grand Traverse Bay just off Bower’s Harbor. This island is one of the last undeveloped Great Lakes islands in close proximity to an urban area. It is filled with a beautiful stand of northern hardwoods, including beech, sugar maple, basswood and red oak, as well as more than 250 plant species. Wildlife includes red fox and bobcat who prey on such small mammals as the meadow vole, woodland deer mouse and short-tailed shrew. Bird-watchers will likely see the red-eyed vireo, American goldfinch, Veery and Bank and Tree Swallow. Approximately 11 miles of hiking trails weave through the island’s interior. Due to Power Island’s proximity to Traverse City, it is a popular boating and picnicking destination.

    I have scheduled Captain Mike for Wednesday, September 12, 2016 to depart at 10:00 am for the geocaching tour to Power Island. I will consider adding 4 more geocachers who wish to find Power Island GC35. We will take the route around the island, not over the hill. Please reply if you would like to share this adventure and the cost.

    I am trying to learn if anyone has any AMBITIOUIS plans to POWERboat to the geocache. If so I would like to LAND a spot onboard. I could be available October 14, 15, or 16. I would obviously share the expense. Email me if anything is in the works
