(2/6/2006 - Many thanks to workerofwood for creating a new container for this cache!)
My daughter came up with the idea of this cache, and she and my son helped scout out the location.
It is located right next to the Los Gatos Creek Trail inside Vasona Park. You can pay to enter the park, but free parking is available on the street (I think it is University and Blossom Hill) near the train. And you can enter the park for free by following the trail from many locations.
Even though it is right next to the trail, it is not visible to people passing by, and little ones may not be able to reach it. I am assuming that an adult will be there to help out...:-). It is along a part of the trail that can get kind of busy, so try to be discreet when retrieving and re-placing the cache. You will need to bring your own PEN to sign the log (pencil does not work well on the waterproof paper).
We are not sure that collecting the new state quarters is all the rage it used to be, but it does make for something interesting to trade for a micro cache.
As the name suggests, this is a trading post. So, take a quarter you need for your collection, leave a different one for someone else.
While you are on the trail, you might want to make a day of it and also visit other nearby caches.
