Geocache Description:

The final geocache is NOT located at the posted coordinates, but they do provide a good place to park. The actual hide location coordinates clues are given below. Bring your own writing tool and be sure to follow park rules. Permission provided by Richard Fox, Marion Parks Department.

I've often been accused by close family members of being slooooow to catch the holiday spirit. They've even associated me with the phrase Bah, Humbug!!! Well, in my defense, I simply don't want to peak too early. Starting holiday shopping in early July would have me peaking in July instead of late December. Hence, just to PROVE I am not a Scrooge in 2011, I present this hide to you as a holiday gift in the form of a little fun (the puzzle shouldn't prove too difficult) and an easy smiley (pretty straightforward hide). Have a Happy Holiday, everybody!!!
