A red herring is a clue or piece of information which is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual issue.

some of my favorite caches feature clever red herrings located in likely cache hiding spots. in the spirit of this technique, there are plenty of red herrings featured in this cache to taunt and humor your search.

the container is in an interesting location that should offer muggle-free searching most of the time.

be sure to check out the view from the top where you can admire an unobstructed view of the space needle to the south as well as the wonderful queen anne neighborhood hill to the north.

edit 6/27/2012: there is a new community pea patch on the roof! check it out!
edit 7/5/2012: there is also a bathroom on level A by the elevator with hot water!

*in addition to the cache, there are six red herrings planted nearby, as well as numerous 'natural' red herrings, let us know how many you've found!

note: part of the challenge and fun of this cache is the hunt and the creative hide, please do not spoil the enjoyment of others by posting hints or photos of the cache.

STF prize is a special 'second to find' markta coin. if you are claiming the FTF, please leave this coin for the STF person. thanks!
