We are honored to have won the WSGA geocache of the month for September 2013.

We are a group of creatives that would like to combine our love of art, and geocaching by placing geocaches at some of our favorite art centric locations around Seattle.

This is the first of those caches. It is a three stage multi-cache that helps you explore the wonderful Seattle Central Library. The library is housed in an exceptional piece of architecture designed by architect Rem Koolhaas, and houses many wonderful, books on art, design, music, and photography as well as many other great subjects.

We hope you enjoy it!

Congratulations to Nizer, Nancelot, Red Barrister, and t.scout for the combined FTF!
