This is a cache for kids of all ages! It’s located at Highland Woods Park in the City of Mequon. The Purple Key is one of six required to find “CC’s Rainbow Shape Sorter” and subsequently the prize box at “The End of the Rainbow”. All the caches in this series were hidden by 7 year old CC with minimal help from dad. They are all winter friendly and should be accessible by kids 7 and up. As when hunting any geocache, please watch for thorns and possible poison ivy! Most caches are within 50 feet of the trails so stealth may be required!
When CC was a baby, one of her favorite toys was this Rainbow Shape Sorter. She loved dropping the animal shapes through the slots and using the keys to set them free. We are both glad to find a new use for this special toy. Bring the kids or grandchildren for this one! Were certain that fun will be had by all!
Scenario: CC’ Rainbow Shape Sorter series is comprised of 8 caches; 6 traditional and 2 mysteries. The 6 traditional color key caches use the actual keys as markers for ground zero. Please leave the keys in place as they are only markers to help the young ones remember where ground zero is while hunting! They are not needed to unlock the sorter! The key colors are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple. All six keys are zip tied to a tree or branch and cache container is hidden within 20 feet, so keep an eye out for them if your GPS device is jumpy under the tree cover. Inside the cache container on the underside of the lid you will see partial coordinates for the “White Key” cache that contains the Rainbow Shape Sorter. Make sure you record the coordinates, sign each log book and stamp your sheet if you like. Please leave the stamps in the cache as they are not trading items! After finding all 6 colored keys you will have a complete set of coordinates to find the “White Key” mystery cache. There is no marker for this cache, but it is quite large and should not be too difficult to find. When you find the Shape Sorter, use the White Master Key to unlock the 6 doors and remove each animal. On each animal you will find the partial coordinates to the “End of the Rainbow” mystery cache. The trick is that you must arrange the animals in the correct order to display the correct coordinates. Once you figure out the coordinates to the “End of the Rainbow” then lock up, drop the animals in the sorter and sign the log book. The final is a large green ammo box filled with trading items. Again, no marker at this cache, but the box is quite large. Have a great time! CC & Jack
