Geocache Description:

Small cache - hope you enjoy it!

Alexander Haubold of Columbia University has been looking into the question:

"How many seeds does a pomegranate have?"

"Pomegranates are curious fruits - apple-sized, red in color, and containing hundreds of pitch-red juicy seeds. It contains multiple compartments, each tightly packing seeds around a sponge-like center, in some more or less random formation.

Sources are in disagreement about how many seeds a pomegranate holds. Some sources fix the number to exactly 613, some allow for an error of +/- 200, yet others believe that all pomegranates have the exact same number of seeds. It is certainly possible to disprove the first and third of these."

The research continues, but oddly enough the average of the over 200 pomegranates tested so far (from six different countries) is... 613. Go figure.

More on this study can be found here.

This cache is cammo'd, but should be no problem to find, though I can't promise the same for the log scroll. Please note trades are only permitted after signing the log. You MUST find the scroll, which is NOT just a piece of paper... It's three rite-in-the-rain microcache log scrolls stapled together. Please do not log trades on the scroll unless they are trackable items (geocoins or travel bugs). Take a moment to replace everything as you found it before leaving. Post no spoilers. Please email me with any questions.

Thanks, and have fun!

This cache is one of several on the Glengarry Trail System.

Congrats to Inkyfiller for being the First to Find (even though it took two trips!)
