This is a small cache with room for a few coins only, there is an un-activated gold “Four Elements Geocoin” (corrected version) for the FTF and $5.00 for the STF.

There are some small cliffs about so watch the kids (that is why I gave it a 2.5 terrain rating).

GPS accuracy was +/- 2.8m. You will have either solved the puzzle or you will have gibberish, so I haven't set up any verification, but feel free to e-mail me for confirmation if you wish.
