Geocache Description:

All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the mountain and I.
Li Po

Against the hard and pale blue evening sky
The mountain's new-dropped summer snow is clear
Glistening in steadfast stillness: like transcendent
Clean pain sending on us a chill down here.
D H Lawrence

Genuine 5 X 5 cache in the “Garden County”.
I have changed this to a straightforward but tough to reach cache with no puzzle to solve. The coordinates that will appear on the top of the page will be those of the cache. I will shortly be removing all items at the various stages of the original Garden 1 which will now not be necessary
High Open moorland, rocky and sometimes quite precipitous terrain.
Close attention! Hillwalking experience required. Sometimes no visible tracks. Proper trekking gear. Be careful of bog holes. OSI map 56 and compass, GPSr with mapping and contours. Vertigo sufferers avoid. ok!

Don’t forget the camera. Try to pick a nice day...or two. Enjoy.

Please be clearly aware that anyone attempting this cache does so entirely at their own risk and that the cache owner has no liability of any sort and for any reason, accident or mishap.
You can contact the military at 045 404653 to avoid firing days.

Please be aware that cars parked in areas close to walking trails are vulnerable and they can be vandalised or stolen. Unfortunately this is an ongoing problem which is extremely difficult to solve, so there is a risk involved. I have heard recently that many hiker groups are parking at the nearest population centres and getting taxis to and from the start points at very little expense.

Please observe the country code to the best of your ability. Local landowners often generously allow access to upland areas across or through parts of their private property. Please, please be conscious of this and return the courtesy by keeping all gates closed, immediately and not on your way back!. Please use the gates where appropriate but if you have to climb over them then use the hinged side ONLY.
Please do not cause any damage of any sort to fences or barriers along the way.

You ask me why I live on Green Mountain?
I smile in silence and the quiet mind.
Peach petals blow on mountain streams
To earths and skies beyond Humankind.

I have a world apart that is not among men.
Li Po
