Geocache Description:

This is the bonus cache of the Frog and Toad cipher mini-series that will take you on a nice little hike on the woodland trails at Burke Lake Park. The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. Each of the previous Frog and Toad cipher caches contains a keyword that is required to unlock this bonus cache. Use the Certitude geochecker on the cache page to unlock the trailhead coordinates and the attachment for this cache.

“Frog said, ‘I wrote 'Dear Toad, I am glad that you are my best friend. Your best friend, Frog.' 'Oh,’ said Toad, 'that makes a very good letter.' Then Frog and Toad went out onto the front porch to wait for the mail. They sat there, feeling happy together.”

Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel

To find this bonus cache, you will need to do the following:

a. Collect the keywords from the three other caches in the series including "Dear Toad", "Toad’s Missing Buttons" and "The Petrified Pachyderm" (see links below).
