This is a mystery cache. The listed coordinates are for a micro cache that contains a hint to the puzzle (if you need it). You must solve the puzzle below to determine the final coordinates. You need to make some keen observations and then a correlation. The final coordinates are within 1 mile of the micro cache hint coordinates. There is parking near the micro cache with a hint. This cache may be difficult in the winter if there is more than 3 feet of snow on the ground and the micro with the hint can easily get covered up by plows in the winter.
