I've always noticed the large flat "step" in the Niagara Escarpment that most of Bond Lake Park is located on. This is most obvious if you are traveling up or down the escarpment on route 429. I'd estimate this to be a good 1/2 mile in length. Now I'm no geologist, and don't know the reason for this, but I've never noticed the middle flatland of the escarpment being so wide anywhere else in New York or Ontario. As a matter of fact, it's only a couple hundred feet wide 10 miles away from this cache in Lockport.
So this cache showcases the upper escarpment in the park. I was nice, and didn't make you climb it. On top of that, it should be a super easy find for the average Geocacher. It's designed to be exposed if viewed from the correct angle, and fits in it's spot nice and tight, please put it back the same way. The cache is about .40 miles one way from the parking area.
Obviously, this cache was placed at the same time as a cache I hid on Geocaching.com a few hundred feet away. They can't possibly be mistaken for each other. It is in between two caches on that website that are only .12 miles apart. Woohoo, there's a power trail in those woods!
