Found it sandlanders found A Spring In Between Two Glaciers: Natureland Park

Sunday, September 30, 2012Wisconsin

We were exploring parts of southeastern Wisconsin today, and since the next cache on our list was in this park, we decided to break out the cooler and have our picnic lunch here. We were kind of bummed to sit there at our picnic table so close to the spring that is the subject of this EarthCache, but not doing too many of them, or at least those involving water, we never got ourselves a thermometer or pH testing materials, so this EC was going to have to be unfound by us.

Then as were were finishing our lunch, we heard, "Don't you know that they don't allow geocaching in this park?" What? We didn't even have our receiver out, so how did that guy know... Oh, it's Team Deejay! Did some chatting, then Dave was kind enough to let us join in on the testing of the spring water for the EarthCache, so all was good. We got a photo of him, but we didn't get one of us, so pics of the spring only will have to suffice. We went on to get a nearby physical cache together, then we hit the road while Deejay hit the rest of the trails in this nice park.

Thanks for sharing this place with us through your EarthCache here, ClickChik!

infoAn Earthcache is an educational form of a virtual cache. The reward for these caches is learning more about the planet on which we live - its landscapes, its geology or the minerals and fossils that are found there. Many Earthcaches are in National Parks. Some are multi-cache in form, and some have a physical log book located in or close to a Visitor Center. Earthcaches are developed in association with the Geological Society of America.
