Geocache Description:

Who created this mysterious painting in the midst of Lynn Woods? What is it's meaning? Find the cache and read the mysterious enscription to find out.

This is the geocache used for the the maskvolk 2007 Halloween event. There are two trails that can be taken in, each about a one mile round trip. The easier trail is flat for the first 300 meters, with a last 100 meters up steep trail. This entrance is directly behind the east corner of the establishment. A little further to the east, in the adjacent dirt parking lot, is the start of a more difficult trail, but well worth the views of the mountain bike ramps and skyline of Boston. You can find the cache and view the artistry without climbing on the cliffs by following the correct trails. Please exercise caution when there.

There should be parking in the back lot of the Bostonville Grille, however, this is very limited during big sports events.

Thanks to Cool Librarian who was able to find info on the artist (I don't think "graffiti" applies). He's a graffiti artist who goes by ICHABOD. He's known mostly for his rail car work, and is apparently quite prolific, tagging all over the east coast (and beyond). I don't know his real name. However, there is a small pic of him in one of the following links, and a pic of work that looks like the mural, and also appears to be commissioned art.

Note that there are two cache containers floating around. The true cache is a locktite box at ground level (see Cornell Acacia photo). The second is a white lidded tupperware shoebox, labeled Skull Cliffs, that I hid here 3 years ago as a decoy (see Dirtnapper's photo). I would appreciate if anyone else finds the white lidded box to please remove it. It now appears that there is a can being used as the cache. Whichever you find counts toward logging this cache - just make sure you get a good look at the cliffs.
