This is a hike I have been meaning to do for several years but it took a geocache to get me out there in the middle of winter on a 7-degree day. The gates to the campground are closed for the winter so this is a long hike, which makes it great! Total time to and from the parking spot was about 2 hours because I took my time and enjoyed the spectacular scenery as the sun sparkled on the ice and the fresh snowfall. If you like Pike Powder Hike you will LOVE this one. I highly recommend it. The final 150 feet is tricky especially with snow on the ground, and right now my footprints are probably a give-away. Thanks, beggymike14, for the excellent geocache!

I really enjoyed this one. The hike took about 1 1/2 hours to do. There was no snow which made it more interesting looking for the cache. Thanks for the awesome cache.

I'm very happy to hear so many people have enjoyed the hike to see Goosey Venus. This has been a spot that I've wanted to put a cache since I started in August. This was a cache that I wanted to encompass what I love about most of my favorite cache hunts. It is just such a beautiful spot, yet it also hides a very challenging and technical aspect to the entire hunt.
Thanks to the Mother Goose, it got me and a lot of others out to experience this great area. Thanks folks, and good hunting!
