Description   EN   

Geocachers love geography.

From Wikipedia: “Geography (from Greek γεωγραφία - geographia, lit. "earth describe-write") is the science that deals with the study of the Earth and its lands, features, inhabitants, and phenomena. A literal translation would be "to describe or write about the Earth". The first person to use the word "geography" was Eratosthenes (276-194 BC). Four historical traditions in geographical research are the spatial analysis of natural and human phenomena (geography as a study of distribution), area studies (places and regions), study of man-land relationship, and research in earth sciences. Nonetheless, modern geography is an all-encompassing discipline that foremost seeks to understand the Earth and all of its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be. Geography has been called 'the world discipline'. As "the bridge between the human and physical sciences," geography is divided into two main branches—human geography and physical geography.

Truly recommend the entire series, especially if you know someone you'd like to introduce to caching.  Either way, come out and enjoy a nice walk in the park.

2644.  This was my 4th ACES cache and 7th find in the park, today.  When I was first headed to this one, I wasn't sure about access from the main trail, so decided to do a nearby GC.com cache, first.  While walking away, I noticed a woman cut of the trail and head where I needed to go.  I still couldn't find the trailhead, but that gave me the confidence that was the way I needed to go, as well.

The only muggles I had to worry about, was one family that passed by when I standing near GZ.  There were a number of places to check, so I did look at the clue, after a bit, and that definitly help.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
