THIS CACHE IS NOT FOUND AT THE ABOVE LISTED COORDINATES!

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is the seventh and final of the Harry Potter novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The book was released on 21 July 2007, ending the series that began in 1997 with the publication of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." This book chronicles the events directly following "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" (2005), and leads to the long-awaited final confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.

Following Dumbledore's death, Voldemort has completed his ascension to power and gains control of the Ministry of Magic. Harry, Ron and Hermione drop out of school so that they can find and destroy Voldemort's remaining three Horcruxes, which are special objects that contain a part of Voldemort's soul, thus protecting He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named from destruction. They isolate themselves to ensure the safety of their family and friends. As they search for the Horcruxes, the trio learn details about a strange symbol, which an eccentric wizard named Xenophilius Lovegood tells them represents the mythical Deathly Hallows.

The Hallows are revealed to be three sacred objects: the Resurrection Stone, a stone with the power to bring others back to life; the Elder Wand, an unbeatable wand; and an infallible Invisibility Cloak. Harry learns that Voldemort is after the Elder Wand, but the trio decides that discovering Voldemort's Horcruxes is more important than procuring the wand for themselves.

In order to find this cache, you must first locate the following three caches: The Invisibility Cloak; The Resurrection Stone; and The Elder Wand. Within those caches will be numbers to use in the following formula to find the final Deathly Hallows cache coordinates:

Deathly Hallows Coordinates:
W 40 55.(270 + The Invisibility Cloak)
N 074 28 (The Elder Wand + The Resurrection Stone)

Since this is meant as a child-friendly series of caches, cache contents contain treasures suitable for children. Caution on some climbs during this series should be exercised. There is the possibility of a bear sighting in these woods also, so review the proper etiquette to use if encountering such an animal.

Special Note:  This mystery cache was originally placed on 07/26/2010.  Originally there was a fourth cache to find, in beautiful Jonathan's Woods, named, "Harry, Ron, and Hermione."  Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy took out most of the lovely pine forest in 2012, and that fourth cache was lost.  The final to this series also went missing sometime in the past two years.  

CONGRATULATIONS to AylaValo for the FTF on this series!!!!!!!
