Geocache Description:

This cache is located in Black Moshannon State Park which features a beautiful lake and wetlands natural area. Be prepared to walk approximately 1.5 miles (round trip) on well marked trails.

    Dragons and damsels and ghosts, oh my!
    Plants that eat insects who come in to fly,
    Cows that don't moo and critters with masks,
    All of these secrets revealed at last!

    Don't get bogged down—the treasure awaits!
    Fill in the puzzle—it's never too late.
    To find the coordinates read the displays.
    All answers are there to show you the way!

Finding this cache requires solving a simple crossword puzzle (see below) and hiking about 1.5 miles (round trip) on beautiful, well maintained trails. All of the puzzle answers are revealed on informational displays along the first 0.3 mile of the trail, which includes a beautiful lakeside boardwalk. Parking is available at the trailhead, located at the listed coordinates.

Once you have solved the puzzle, you can determine 5 single digit numbers as follows:

    C = the number of C's in your puzzle solution
    R = the number of R's in your puzzle solution
    A = the number of A's in your puzzle solution
    Z = the number of Z's in your puzzle solution
    Y = the number of Y's in your puzzle solution

Just as a check that you have the correct numbers, the sum of C + R + A + Z + Y should be equal to 12.

Now, substituting your numbers for the letters, the final cache site is at:
    N   40 RA.CRY
    W 078 ZA.ZRZ

Please stay on designated trails until you are within 50 feet of the cache. The cache container is an ammo box.
