Description   EN   

This is a travelers cache, the Heritage Hotel.  It is a cozy but elegant cache.  It is a little small compared to full size ammo containers but it should be spacious enough for any travelers.  Consider it a small large container.  It has been made from a 2.4 liter HPL323 Lock & Lock container that has been camo painted. 

It is located in the 169 acre Heritage Park in Farmington Hills, one of my local favorite parks.  There are plenty of trails to explore that will take you away from the main and occupied parts of the park.  The part of the park where this cache is located also has the play area, sprayscape and hockey rink (roller in summer, ice in winter.) The hours are dawn to dusk with the one park gate which is locked when the park is closed.  The park is accessed from Farmington Road.

The cache is located off of a side trail off the main trail around a bend, past or south of the cache coordinates.  The side trail is discernible in winter.  In the winter it will be a little more exposed but if you freeze like a deer or crouch like a rabbit there shouldn't be any problems.  The cache should be accessible with some snow on the ground.  If there is heavy snow, it may not be.  Please restore the cache hiding place after you are done visiting.

We have started the hotel in business by including two GeoKrety travelers my ten year-old daughter put together:

I had hoped this would receive a little more activity.  This is the only cache container I have of this kind.  Unfortunately it was too close to GC caches that have been placed to try to cross post it.  I have removed the container and may try to find a new location to place it.

Out today for some caching and then to end up at the Meet at the Coffee Shop 27: The Winter Solstice event in South Lyon.  I was in this park a couple of weeks ago when I made a mistake with a multi cache.  Some kids were enjoying the hill with their sleds and snow boards.  I really liked the snowmen that I found near the cache.  Another cold and cloudy day.  TNLN  TFTC
