Divide & Conquer Mystery Cache

This cache has been archived.

KA&JWest: The wonderful dead cottonwood tree with all the glass birds, which hosted the cache at its base, has fallen across the canal, and I couldn't find any sign of the cache. With the tree down, there is a big hole where it was and no longer a good cache hide spot.

I will be rebuilding another cache like this when I get the chance.
