Cache Attributes

In the Woods Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

A lot of urban caches are small and magnetic, hidden under benches and the like. Another common type is hung in an evergreen, where the prickly needles hide the cache from view all year long.

This is not those types!

Sometimes, there is a little oasis in the middle of the city, and this is one of those places. Please note that although this may look like a bushwhacking area, I followed paths almost all the way to the final cache location - if possible, please do the same! There are little trails throughout, and there's no need to cause damage to the area to find this cache. As an added bonus, you might run in to fewer mosquitoes if you disturb less foliage.I have given Trailhead way points to the 2 ends of the main path which connects to sidewalks on either end. After that, use your good sense. :)

1 28 June 2015 Bon Echo Found it

Got it! June 28/15. My first OCNA cache find in Canada and thousands of kms from home! On a month-long road trip through 10 states and 4 provinces to vist with friends and family. Spent the night in Edmonton visiting friends. My first time in Edmonton. It's a big city, so i was surprised when I realized I was less than 2 kms from this cache. This patch of forest was a nice break from the hot sun. It really is a dry heat, much better than the humidity I am now "enjoying" again back in Ontario.

Thanks iicydiamonds for placing and maintining this opencache!
