This cache is placed in honor of Rene Descartes who brought us the cartesian coordinate system and the satellite technology that makes our geocaching game possible.
The cache is a satelitte to its earthly home. Please be careful of the natural camo.
CONGRATULATIONS to Socorro on #600 and an FTF while out caching with a group of 5th, 6th, and 7th graders!

Thanks to Knappling for bringing me to this area with its fine hiking system to X, Y, and Z Lakes. You can find his cache GC1WQKY at a great viewpoint along the X Lake trail.
