Geocache Description:

Fun makes a comeback! Check out this adventurous playground equipment.

Located in Ed Thoreson Park, this cache is camouflaged to fit it's environment (the hint describes the container). The terrain rating of 2 is due to the height requirement, but most people could build a mound in the rock to add a few inches. The 'container' fit's pretty snug in it's location, so don't be afraid to pull a little bit.

It seems that these days there has been a bit too much emphasis on playground safety. Not that we should be seeing dangerous equipment, but a lot of fun is lost when you make things 'super-safe'. It's nice to see challenging equipment where children can safely explore their physical limits and have some heart-pounding fun. Thanks Stow Family!
