Geocache Description:

Note that this cache was published on April Fools' Day 2013.
The cache is hidden in 52 acre Marshall Park which is also home to the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. After finding the cache, I'd recommend taking some time to see more of what this great area has to offer.

I wish I could take full credit for the idea behind this cache, but I cannot. It is loosely based on a similar cache that I found several years ago that I really enjoyed. That cache no longer exists, so I'm borrowing the general concept with a slightly different spin so new cachers can have a similar experience. You may need to think "outside the box" on this tricky cache. Expect to spend a little more time on this cache as designated by the assigned difficulty rating.

The cache is a regular sized container with nice starting swag, a logbook, and a pencil. Please follow all instructions, trade fairly, sign the log, and return the cache to its original state of concealment so this will be a fun find for future cachers as well.

Cachers must sign the logbook to count this cache as a find. Please do not include spoilers in your photos or on-line log. Thank you.

While you are in the area, you may also want to check out the other April Fools type cache placed in this park the previous year. It is linked here: “April Tools Cache”
