Geocache Description:

You will need a telescope and a compass. Try to pick a somewhat clear day to go,preferably 3 hours before sunset. These are not only rocks to find. There are cracks in the rocks to look at and walk through. One crack has cool air coming out. The area to explore is about 200' by 50'. There is also something else up there...

Cache is in a small white jar. Bring own pencil(try to use a pencil,pens smudge). It took me 4 trips(this is before google earth had high resolution-I used topozone) to find these rocks. Take a compass reading of 155° at part 1 and look just slightly over a mountain of rock and dirt(it's about 1/4 of the way from the left side).

When you get to the rocks look west for a big white birch tree(you will be able to see this tree in the scope). Keep going west appox. 160' to the cache. Location of cache is described in the hint. A small flashlight might come in handy. Special thanks to Rich in NEPA for help naming this cache.
They also returned the first finders prize of $10. Read about it here (visit link)
