david&diana: It had a good run. Maybe we'll bring it back as a single stage puzzle.

Geocache Description:

This is our first attempt at a somewhat more difficult cache. We've been inspired by El Diablo and Hawk-Eye and tried to give it a different twist. Don't worry. It's not that difficult.

It's a multi-micro-cache.

The first stage has been moved to a park that is open from 5:30 a.m. until midnight. It is a puzzle (in the form of a Geocaching haiku). You have to solve the puzzle to find the coordinates to the second stage. The two stages are over 10 miles apart so you'll probably want to drive.

The second stage is in a small wooded area. Do not cross anyone's yard to get to the cache. There's an easy way to approach, you just have to find it. It's a green plastic container 7" high and 3" in diameter with just enough room for coins, jewelry, a pencil, and a small logbook.
