Geocache Description:

There's Agua!
And it doesn't Sarca!
Or,maybe it does.

The cache is 1.20 miles from the parking lot.
You will be following an old Jeep trail.
An easy trail to follow up to the cache.
The cache is next to an old stone circle.
A Native American shelter.(I think)
I have seen similar on mesa tops.
My accuracy was only 20.7 due to the tree cover and the narrow canyon walls.
Beyond the cache the trail gets rather overgrown.
(bring a machete,100lbs.of gunpower,and a guide who speaks Hutu)
The trail takes you all of the way up to Team Tux's cache(GC13PT6) and eventully joins the North Crest Trail.
You could also bag Ganelo's Sandia's MRP(GCJP4Z) cache from this trail.

Take I-25 north from Albuquerque, and exit 242 go east toward Placitas.
(VERY IMPORTANT) (VERY IMPORTANT) (VERY IMPORTANT)
At the exit ramp reset your odometer.
The turn-off for FR 231 is about five miles.
There is a green street sign that says Tunnel Spring (the name of the dirt road)
The dirt road up to the trailhead is bit rough, but I've seen Beemer's(cars) driving on the road.
Go slow.
There is a sign for the Agua Sarca trailhead on the right (Canon De Agua Sarca) side of the road. and a parking area to the left.
The first .75 tenths has no shade to speak of ,so I would suggest go early in the morning to avoid the heat.
Bring plenty of water,because it's hot,Africa hot.
Besides, water is a self correcting problem in weight.TM.(C)
