This three-stage cache commemorates Rosa Parks, the woman who famously stood up for her civil rights by refusing to “move to the back of the bus”.
To retrieve the container you will need to bring a steel object, less than two inches in size. A LARGE machine screw nut would work well. You'll also need a piece of string at least three feet long.
A round-trip walk is approximately 1.1 miles. If you choose to drive, safe parking (off the street) is available near each of the stages.
