Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the Auburn Geocaching Adventure 2017. If you are participating in the Adventure, be sure to record each cache's code word in your series passport to verify your visit.

Visit the artwork at the posted coordinates and gather the information needed to determine the coordinates of the cache container. Parking is available on the street to the east of the artwork.


Artist Patricia Vader created the steel and aluminum sculpture following the 'unbearable lightness of being' concept to trump life's heavy side. At the base of the artwork is a plaque with the information you'll need.

Using the information on the plaque solve for the final coordinates.
How many letters in the first word of the second line? Let that number = 'A'.
How many letters in the first word of the first line? Let that number = 'B'
How many letters in the last word in the first line? Let that number = 'C'
How many letters in the first word in the fourth line? Let that number = 'D'
What is the third number in the date in the third line? Let that number = 'E'
How many letters in the first word in the third line? Let that number = 'F'


Now plug those numbers into the formula to find the coordinates for the geocache location:

N 47 16.ABC
W 122 11.DEF
Check Sum: A+B+C = 17 and D+E+F = 18



2017 is the third Geocaching Adventure in the City of Auburn, Washington. Auburn Parks, Arts and Recreation, auburntourism.com, and the WSGA are hosting the Auburn Geocaching Adventure 2017 - 20 caches placed in Auburn. The geocaches highlight some specific works of art, some parks, and some areas of general interest in Auburn. We hope you enjoy visiting the Auburn area, learning about its public art.
