A small cache near Santa Teresa Spring.
This cache is near the entrance to Santa Teresa Spring. The Spring runs year-round, and provides water for this pond and the surrounding berries and oaks. The pond is full of turtles.
The spring and the pond have an interesting history. STP Ron summarizes it well on his website:
As he tells it:
One local legend has it that one of the members of the Bernal family, named Dottie, was swimming in the pond when a giant hand reached up and pulled her underwater, where she drowned. Because of this, the pond is known locally as Dottie's pond.
So ... no swimming. :)
The cache is an antique artifact that the ancients referred to as a "film can", for reasons that have been lost in the mists of time.
It is only a step or two off trail. Initial contents are a travel bug fetched from Hong Kong, a rubber ball, a log and pencil.
