    Every Cacher in Cacheville liked Cachemas a lot,
    But The Grinch , who lived just north of Cacheville--did not.

    The Grinch hated Cachemas - the whole Cachemas season.
    Now, please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason.

    It could be, perhaps, that his GPS was not quite right.
    Or it could be that his coordinates were always out of sight.

    But I think the most likely reason of all,
    May have been that his cache numbers were way too small:
    Grinch (12 found)

    That is MR. GRINCH to you!

    On the 12th day of Cachemas, The Grinch had a vision.
    And he smiled nastily as he pondered his decision.

    He would take all the presents, he would take the Cachemas trees,
    He would steal all of their feast and their last can of peas.

    Finally The Grinch came to the last house,
    Where he proceeded to work as quietly as a mouse.

    The Grinch took the tree and as he started to shove,
    He heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.

    He turned around fast and he saw a small Cacher, little Cindy Lou,
    Little Cindy Who was just about two. Who was no more than two.

    She stared at THE GRINCH and said...Santie Claus, why?
    Why are you taking our Cachemas Tree? Why?

    But you know that old Grinch was so smart and so slick,
    That he thought up a lie and he thought it up quick.

    The fake Santie Claus lied...Why my sweet little cacher...What? You do not trust me?

    There's a cache box I own that I do need to hide.
    In your tree it will fit, perfectly, inside.

    Think of all the joy this cache box will bring.
    All the cachers will rejoice, they will dance and they'll sing.

    This fib fooled the child and she went back to bed.
    While visions of a rotten Cachemas danced in The Grinch's head.

    Can you help our fellow cacher, Little Cindy Lou find her cache box? Or will you let the GRINCHY GRINCH win?..

    Park at the main parking lot and then follow the BLUE trail. There is no need to bushwhack.

    A camera is strongly recommended in case you cannot figure out the clue at the cache site, or simply for review and research later.

    This is the Thirteenth and last in the series of caches “The Grinch Who Stole of CACHEMAS”. For each of the 13 days beginning Cachemas Eve a new cache is released. In addition to the winter friendly fun each cache contains a clue (the hider's identity) to the coordinates for a final prize cache where a stolen gift is waiting for you. All the caches in this series are snow friendly or try to be and mostly family oriented with terrain and difficulty no more than 3.0 mostly due to short inclines on some.
