Geocache Description:


ATTENTION!!!
The cache is not at the above coordinates.


The following is an excerpt from the poem "under the Waterfall" by Thomas Hardy
I thought it fitting as the coordinates you are trying to find on this page will take you to a wonderful little waterfall. The coordinates posted at the top of the page will merely take you to a place to park.

'Whenever I plunge my arm, like this,
In a basin of water, I never miss
The sweet sharp sense of a fugitive day
Fetched back from its thickening shroud of gray.
Hence the only prime
And real love-rhyme
That I know by heart,
And that leaves no smart,
Is the purl of a little valley fall
About three spans wide and two spans tall
Over a table of solid rock,
And into a scoop of the self-same block;
The purl of a runlet that never ceases
In stir of kingdoms, in wars, in peaces;
With a hollow boiling voice it speaks
And has spoken since hills were turfless peaks.'

My favorite thing about this waterfall is at the bottom of the falls. You might want to walk(slide) down and take a look. Then ask yourself just how this was done and how long ago.
