Geocache Description:

This cache was originally named The Dead Forest? The cache is hidden in an area that was extensively burned by the Grand Prix fire of October 2003. With the vegetation growing back in every conceivable way, it hardly seemed appropriate to call this a dead forest any longer.

The listed coordinates will take you to the parking lot of the park. You will need to solve the two puzzles to find the cache. The puzzles are independent of each other, so don't solve one and then insert the numbers into the other one. That won't work. One puzzle is for the North coordinates and the other puzzle is for the West coordinates.

With all the new growth, there is a need for some bushwhacking once you get near the cache area. The pictures probably won't help you much anymore, but I'll leave them there for comparison's sake. You're looking for an ammo can at the base of a regrowing bush.

The puzzle for the north coordinates is:
    E W E
+ D E L L

The puzzle for the west coordinate is:

  E A R S
+ E A R S

Final coordinates are:
N 34 od.ssd
W 117 ar.eww

The last 300 feet will require some bushwacking, but the rest of the hike is along a fire road in the park.

Please do not take the logbook, pencils or camera. Please take your picture with the camera and those pictures will be posted here at a later date.
