The Schnauzer's were looking for a way to put out a short series of caches in this part of the county, and our "Great Lakes Tributes" will do just that. Nothing difficult about these caches, just plain and simple park and grabs. These may be a little touger to tackle during the winter months. You shouldn't have too much trouble with muggles, though there are some farmsteads nearby so you may want to be on the lookout for them if they're out in their fields.
This cache is a tribute to the most polluted of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie. Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania all border this lake, but pollution levels of nitrates, mercury and other toxins are higher here than in any of the other lakes. This isn't hard to believe when you find out that one of America's most polluted cities, Cleveland, Ohio, is on the shores of Erie. In the 1970's, Cleveland's Cuyahoga River caught fire due to copius amounts of oil that had been dumped into it by barges and ships that were loading and unloading. That river empties directly into Lake Erie.
