      I had a similar experience with a cache in Garner State Park (Top of
      the World,Ma!; GCGKMG). After getting to the top of the world and
      signing our name, during the descent I popped the question to bcat...
      cliff-side. :) Needless to say, I couldnt kneel, but it was
      beautiful and great.

      Whats funny is Wendy pretty much knew the proposal was coming during
      our camping trip to Garner. The above find was on our last full day
      there. Her mind was constantly contemplating when it would happen.
      She told me that when we began the trip to the cache, she thought
      maybe I would have the ring in the cache. While I _am_ that big of a
      nerd, the terrain was a serious four-star. After little time into our
      ascent, she soon realized that I would be absolutely crazy to hike up
      there, drop the ring, hike down, and repeat. :)
