A set of Palindromes and a choice...

PALINDROMES

87 + 78 = 165
165 + 561 = 726
726 + 627 = 1353
1353 + 3531 = 4884, a palindrome

Able was I ere I saw Elba – a palindrome

Hannah -a palindrome

Palindromes are those things that will read the same backwards or forwards. They are a bit of an oddity. People have written whole nonsensical stories that are palindromes, where the last letter and every letter in between will match the first letters, in a kind of mirror image.

Numeric palindromes are even more of an oddity in that you can take a set of numbers, reverse them, and add them to the first set of numbers, and sooner or later the sum will result in a palindrome. All except for the number 196. See link:

Even art has a form of palindrome called tessellations, where, in example, the form of a goose flying one way defines the form of a goose flying the opposite way, in a kind of tiled pattern.

THIS CACHE IS DIFFERENT in that you have a choice in logging a find.

Either you can visit the physical cache whose coordinate is a set of palindromes, or you can find a set of coordinates that are a palindrome on your own, visit it, and log the coordinates and a photo here to claim a find. I'll take you at your word if you post the coordinates. The photo that I'm interested in is of the surrounding landscape.
Thus this cache is either a physical cache with one location, or a virtual cache with many possible locations, your choice.

Here is BillsBayou's analysis of Palindrome coordinates

You may log up to one virtual cache (with required coordinates and photo) IN ADDITION to the one physical cache if you wish. Thus you can log two finds on this cache page.

AT THE ABOVE PALINDROME coordinates for THE PHYSICAL CACHE you will see a very large maple tree nearby. This patriarch of a tree holds the cache. The cache is a large thermos and is wrapped in a black plastic trash bag. The cache has an REI bear bell, several glow sticks, and some toys. You may get a bit wet in the tall grass.You also need a ACCESS STEWARDSHIP permit to park
