Description EN

This is a 6 stage virtual cache which will lead you to several different sections of the National Zoo in Washington DC.  The zoo is free, but parking in the zoo's lots is not.  There are unmetered street spots on sections of Connecticut and on side streets such as Garfield and Cathedral which are free and do not require a permit to park on weekends and evenings.

In order to claim a find on this cache, e-mail me the answer to the question for each of the 6 additional waypoints.

In addition, in order to log a find, you need to have physically visited this cache's location. In other words, please no armchair logging.  If one of the spots are inaccessible on a given day due to renovations, just answer the questions for the accessible areas.
