Saw it Sunday, too. Looked like an old baby wipes container?

I think you're right. You can just make out the "slit" where you pull the wipes from.

Yep, and I poked at with my pole enough to satisfy me it was the same plastic material.

I didn't touch it or even poke at it with my hiking poles. It seemed potentially dangerous or toxic ... it also seemed like its owner wasn't far away.

Probably a good idea. Unless inclined to poke it with a .22 from a safe distance away.

Very good chance it's a geocache. Greg says there is a prolific geocache-hider in the Gorge who has used baby wipe-type containers before.

One time I was on the rim of Helens and a FS employee came up checking permits at the rim.
