"Three Blind Mice" is a tribute of sorts to "They all ran after the farmer's wife", an Artful Dodger cache that first utilized this real estate.
This cache WAS a short 2-stage multi.n. Now, the field puzzle is on the cache page below, turning this into a "one-stage" multi!
The cache is a nice-sized lock-n-lock concealed by a geopile NOT at the posted coords.
Here's the setup story...
It turns out the Farmer's Wife was blind. She was tormented by these three pesky mice that also happened to be blind. They kept running after her for some reason, as the song states. She got a tip where the three blind mice lived... that's right - in THIS PARK (go figure)! She wrote the coordinates down (in BRAILLE, OF COURSE) on her guide cane. She grabbed her carving knife and set out after the little fellows. Unfortunately, as she was making her way to their nest, she tripped over a fallen tree and lost her cane with the coordinates! The mice lived happily ever after.
As with all my caches, I WANT YOU TO FIND IT, and have a good experience. As you might have guessed, you will need to decrypt braille onsite of stage 1. Below is a cheat sheet to make your experience more enjoyable:
Hint on Stage 1...
* It's Braille
* Use the key above
* The first character is NOT a number
* Stage 1 is now BELOW! No need to look for it at the posted coordinates.
