Geocache Description:


Welcome to the periodic table of the elements powered trail. There will be 113 caches to each represent each element on the periodic table (until new elements are added). For simplicity sake only elements approved by the “International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry” will be included in this series.



The cache containers are small tubes as shown in the picture below


These containers have only a logbook inside them and no pen/pencil. Please make sure to bring a pen.

Neon is a very inert element. Neon forms an unstable hydrate. In a vacuum discharge tube, neon glows reddish orange. Of all the rare gases, the discharge of neon is the most intense at ordinary voltages and currents. It is present in the atmosphere as 1 part in 65000. Liquid neon has over 40 times more refrigerating capacity than liquid helium, and more than 3 times that of liquid hydrogen.Source: Webelements.

This power trail starts at Mount Henry Bridge and continues south down the freeway cyclepath. This power trail is designed for bicycles or walkers and will be extremely hard, if not impossible for drivers. There is however a car park and a playground near the start.

Please stay safe and enjoy the power trail.
