Geocache Description:

Level ground all the way. Park & walk about 40 minutes each way. Stay on designated paths.

Thanks Paula and Dave!

The cache is hidden in a secluded manner in a famous entomophile container.

This area is one of my favorite in the Weeki Wachee preserve (Preserve). The pile of rocks is quarried from one of the lakes you see in the area. They are bottom sediments from the past. Mostly brittle stars, sand dollars, clams, and billions of microscopic planktonic animals compressed and changed into limestone. In the rocks near the cache you can see many of the casts (shell and animal impressions-reverse fossils) and fossils. Directly over the cache hiding spots is an echinoderm (sea urchin).

This park is one of the hidden gems of Hernando county. It has fishing, great trails, and some fairly secluded spots. The habitats range from protected scrub habitat to Pine Flatwoods. In many places you can see exposed sections of ancient sand dune covered in Sand Pine. Look at the layers in a section by the paved road coming in.

 

The cache container is unusual and I am quite proud of it-so treat it nicely and replace it as found. close tightly. Remember this is a favorite play area in the park-so rehide carefully. The container has room for small trade items. And remember to trade up, trade even-or don't trade at all.

And thanks to Paula and Dave!
