“Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.”

Admit it. Deep down, you want to be Indiana Jones. We ALL want to be Indiana Jones. Full-time treasure hunter, part-time archeologist, and darn handy with a whip — what geocacher hasn’t gotten the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme song stuck in their head?

Dut du dut DAH… Dut du DAH… Dut du dut DAH, Dut du DAH DAH DAH!

Well good news, adventure seekers. Recently, declassified files, photos, and GPS information has allowed the discovery of a new location for The Ark of the Covenant. It now resides in a large cave, deep in the woods of Pennsylvania!

“Trust me.“

    Dut du dut DAH… Dut du DAH… Dut du dut DAH, Dut du DAH DAH DAH!
  • Beware of rubber snakes, skulls, and spider webs covering the concealed lair.

Remarkably, there’s even a geocache in the exact same spot as the sacred Ark with 700 Favorite points and superb directions to it. Just beware of rubber snakes, skulls, and spider webs covering the concealed lair.

The geocache, ahem, Ark is hidden less than a mile up the White Diamond Trail from the ranger’s station. Its hidden less than 100 feet from the trail inside a large cave. Significant climbing and bouldering may be required to access the sacred ground. Although climbing gear is not required, it is recommended that you bring at least two other treasure seekers with you and possibly a rope (whip?) for support.

  • Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?
