Geocache Description:

Grandma and Grandpa have several caches placed around churches in the Waupaca area. These have been great locations. Here's another one. NOTE: Stage 1 was moved to the south side of the river on October 30, 2015.

  • On the other side of the bridge, a quaint chapel in the woods welcomes guests. It was built in 1975. Over 5,000 weddings have been performed here. The chapel holds about 20 people on its 100+ year old pews. Overflow seating is available outside the chapel. "

This can be a very busy place, particularly on summer weekends. Many meandering muggles may be enjoying themselves. Please be as inconspicuous as possible. If a wedding is being set up or in progress come back to seek the cache at another time. Be very careful of icy and/or slippery footing year round. Both cache stages are off the ground and winter friendly. The Crystal River flows through this site, hang on to small children. Stage 1 is prior to the covered bridge. Stage 2 is quite close to the Chapel, and on that side of the river.

Much appreciation is expressed to Don, the current resident and former owner of this property, and to Todd and Sheila, the new owners, for permission and assistance in placing this cache.

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or emoticon logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
Congrats to HideNseeker1 on the FTF of this cache.
