**NOTE: Due to the recent fires in the area, this original question of the virtual cache is unsolveable at this time. I have altered the goal of the cache to make it STILL solveable!!
Upward winding drive into the mountains in Pigeon Forge, fun drive for most, just use common sense in icy conditions. Road isn't isolated, so you won't be alone. 15min up. Fall is amazing, winter beautiful.
To arrive at this cache, you will drive a relatively short distance (2.3miles) from the Parkway light #8, pass Dollywood entrance, and up the Mountain via a winding, and sometimes steep paved road. If you aren't used to ice & steep roads, leave this trip alone in winter, otherwise all other times of the year, the drive will be nice. We stayed in a cabin up here in the Fall (October) and the view is amazing. Once you arrive, you'll probably want to begin planning your next stay to be on this mountain. :) I'll give you a couple hints for the road up as you'll "probably" need them, and I'll also give you an encrypted hint just incase you need a little more help. Once on Dollywood Lane from the Parkway light #8 in Pigeon Forge, Continue 2.3 miles to Walker Trail and make the LEFT. Up we go. Now, you don't wanna go "back home", cuz you feel like "Branching off a Lone". Then it gets kindof "Windy" so you go right with the wind, along the way you'll see a "Raven" on the right as you pass it by, and if you continue on WITHOUT getting "Foxed", you'll end up at the entry to "Heaven".
Here's the final question though to prove you've arrived at the virtual cache. (EDITED due to recent fires) ... Send me a picture of what you see, to show me "what was there before, but is now no more?". And the bonus question "Can you take a picture of a sign that is W E T". Hmmmm i wonder what that means? No, it's not H20 wet!
It's ok to post your pictures in the log. Good Luck & Enjoy this STILL amazing view!!
(Original question - no longer valid due to fires: "How does the sign say you get to Heaven?")
Note: If you have your Geocaching.com profile setup for "opting out of making your email address public" then when you send me your answer to the virtual cache, i cannot respond to you because i dont get your email address to respond to. One option is to OPT IN to providing your email address to the public. Another option is to include your email address with your answer, and i'll try to respond to those as much as possible! Tks.
