Geocache Description:


This cache is NOT located at the posted coordinates.  It is located along the Middletown Reservoir Trails.  Do not attempt to search for this cache after sunset. This section of the trail offers some nice views of the reservoir.  Difficulty rating is for the puzzle portion of the cache - not the hide at the final destination. The rating for the cache itself would be a 2.

This puzzle can be as Hard or as easy as you want to make it. 

An Adventure Within An Adventure…

While out Geocaching, one sees many wonderous things - scenic vistas, vibrant sunsets, purple mountain majesties and breathtaking views.  Unless you are caching in the western U.S. one seldom notices the rocks along the trail.  On a recent trip I stopped to examine and collect some of minerals I encountered.  When I got home, I took the time to identify and study the stones I collected.

I signed out a book from my local library and set off to work scrutinizing the samples in my backpack.  I discovered that I had brought home some onyx, a tiny diamond, fluorite, platinum, sapphire, titanium, graphite and alabaster.    This was something that I had not done before but decided that I would do it again soon!  It was an interesting and fun experience.
