Geocache Description:

This is the seventh in a series of holiday themed letterboxes. It's placed roughly 10ft off of the Blue Trail in LaTourette Park.

Please be conscious of muggles and re-hide the cache as well as found. Also please don't take the stamp, inkpad or the pen! Thanks and enjoy!

I know April Fools is usually about tricky stuff and practical jokes but I'm terrible at things like that, and regardless of what it means to most for DawnAIC & I it's the anniversary of our first official date! Ha, I know, more boring love stuff (St. Patrick's Day was our first kiss and our engagement anniversary is the 4th of July... We have a knack for holidays, what more can I say?) so I'll spare you most of the details. We don't spend all day pranking each other with whoopie cushions or fake flys in an ice cube, but we obviously celebrate it every year, definitely more so than most adults I'd guess, ha.

Anyway, this letterbox shouldn't be hard to find; the shortest path to this  cache is from the Richmondtown entrance where instead of going on the Multipurpose Trail you can go up the hill from the parking lot across the way from St. Andrew's and it will lead you right onto the Blue Trail. I must warn you though that this way to the cache is shorter but the terrain is a little tough since it's a narrow, winding trail up the hill and there are parts of it that usually can get muddy. As a bonus though there are some beautiful views from up here along the way to the cache. Coming from the opposite direction is much longer, but has an easier terrain in my opinion. The hide itself is pretty simple but if you're having trouble finding the log after grabbing the container please reference the hint, thanks and enjoy!
