The “Lord of the Rings” saga mentions five wizards. This series of caches is in honor of each of those wizards. They are the Gandalf the Grey, Radagast the Brown Wizard, Saruman the White Wizard, Alatar the Blue Wizard, and Pallando the Blue Wizard. To get to the One-Ring, you must visit each of the five wizards.
This cache is for Pallando, one of the Blue Wizards. Pallando was one of the five Wizards who came to the northwest of Middle-earth in the Third Age.
Blue Wizards are fictional characters in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium, appearing in The Lord of the Rings.
The five Wizards were sent by angelic beings called the Valar to Middle-earth to aid in the struggle against Sauron. Pallando is called a Blue Wizard on account of his sea-blue robe, and his individual name was given in the Unfinished Tales. Along with Alatar he was sent to the distant east of Middle-earth, and therefore played no role in the events of the west of Middle-earth, as described in the The Lord of the Rings.
Take note of the number in the container lid. This will assist you with the final cache in the series “The One Ring.”
All of the caches in this series have been approved by the City of Eden Prairie. Please obey all park rules (Hours are 6 AM to 10 PM daily). The trails are not cleared during the winter months. Deer are frequently seen in this park and their trails can be very useful. Office attire not recommended.
