We moved to the neighborhood where this cache is located in 2005. At the time I had a pet Newt named Fig. Poor Fig was stuck living in a very small aquarium that didn’t get cleaned as often as it should. When we moved here and found this oasis for Fig so close to our home, I could not help but make him happier by giving him a new home as well. I often wonder what became of Fig after he got dropped off here. Does he sun himself on the rocks? Does he search for bugs in the grass? Or did he get picked up by a heron (okay, let’s not think about that)? Either way, I am sure Fig enjoyed his time here. And who knows, he may still be around! So, while you are here, in my favorite spot in the area I call home; please keep an eye out for Fig!

The cache is starting with three small items resembling things you might find in this area.
