Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the Maine R.O.S.E. Series and is meant to be really obvious, simple and easy. It's perfect for cachers who want a quick find, or who are not up for a physical challenge. The purpose of this series is to promote caching to everyone, and create a fun family cache experience. Some fellow cachers get discouraged by vague descriptions and caches that appear to be difficult hides. Our attempt here is to make the cacher aware of the entire situation before they attempt the cache. If you have any comments that should be added, please let us know.

Directions: This cache is located in Prospect just off Route 1A near the Penobscot Narrows overlook. The Penobscot Narrows bridge is new and already making its mark on the landscape. Please use stealth so this is not muggled.

Parking: There is space for a number of cars to pull into a formal parking area and overlook. In winter, snow may not be totally plowed so please use caution.

Difficulty: This cache has been rated 1.5 for difficulty because the cache is not in plain sight. You will need to remove the cache from a man made structure on the side of the road.

Terrain: This cache has been rated 1.5 for terrain because there is no trail. Depending on where you park there may be a sidewalk and then walk along the edge of the road beside the grass.

Distance: The distance from the place to pull to the side of the road to the cache is roughly 10-40 feet, depending on where you choose to park.

Cache Container: The container is a clean, recycled pill bottle with a large log sheet in a baggie and labels on the outside. Please use stealth when retreiving and replacing this cache so it does not get muggled.

More Information: This series has been developed in collaboration with Cache Maine and Becket. We have each committed to hiding a dozen rose caches in our area. The release of these roses will be sporatic in hopes to have three dozen live by Valentine's Day 2007. That goal was achieved - but as the years have passed - many have been archived. This one has survived. Enjoy!
