Geocache Description:

The walk to the cache should not be too difficult but look out for any holes the critters have made. “Think Safety” while being out in critter country. The cache is in a special container and hoping I have some you of guessing what it is!!??

Dedicated to “Alexander Graham Bell”

 

This cache is dedicated to Alexander Graham Bell who invented the telephone.

He was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland and came to America in April 1871 and he begins teaching the deaf in Boston. In 1874 he meets Thomas Watson who is an electrician by trade and starts working with Bell on a regular basis. Alexander Graham Bell has been working on this idea for several years.

On March 10, 1876 Bell uttered the first famous words on his telephone to Thomas Watson who was in the next room.

“Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you”

Wonder what he would think of our telephone technology of today? Amazing what has occurred since the beginning of this invention. There is a lot of information to be found on the Internet just by goggling their names

Have fun with this cache and remember to put the cache back to where you found it.

There is a special item for the FTF in the cache. Wonder what it is?? Go For It.

Please bring a pencil or pen to sign the log sheet. There is room for very small items and I mean very small. Such as a Ghost from the Ghost!

Parking is available off Highway 100 A. (Approved parking by the Ranger) N42 01.178     W091 33.346

This cache has been placed with the permission of the Ranger at Squaw Creek Park and please obey all park rules.

The walk to the cache should be enjoyed because of all the different kind of trees and especially the row of pine trees. This area is part of the Linn County Conservation Board “Agro forestry Demonstration” area.
