Geocache Description:

The cache is a micro (tube style, silver) - Bring your own pencil, please.  While this will require a small amount of getting off trail, you should not need to get your feet wet.  If you're thinking about getting wet, you're likely in the wrong spot. 

The word "nose" in this cache makes sense if you look at a map of the area ... you don't have to stick your finger in any noses (unless you want to) to find this cache, but you will have to remove a rock booger to see the cache.

State park sticker required ... Park hours are 6am to 11pm ... Cache available in any amount of snow; Dogs are allowed at this location. Keep a close eye on your kids, nearby Quarry Lake is very deep and very nearby. Closest Parking: N43 29.793 W87 47.706

This cache will take you to a beautiful view of historical Quarry Lake, including the bridge built in 2005 giving you better access to this area of the park ... the bridge is an excellent viewing point to check out the remainders of the old wooden pier bases in the water; all that remains of piers and tracks present here from 1902 to 1925, to facilitate the use of carts to transport the quarried stone from the depths of the quarry to the "point" of the beach about 1000 feet east of here. I love this park and this is one of my favorite areas - the view is great and the history sends me back in time.
