Nomex: Hi
As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm temporarily archiving this to keep it from continually showing up in search lists. Just contact us when you have the cache repaired, [RED]and assuming it still meets the guidelines[/RED], we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Don't hesitate to email me via the link on my Profile if you have any questions. [red]Please be sure to include the cache name and GC Code, or better yet, the URL of the cache page.[/red]

Thanks for your cooperation!

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Enjoy some interesting outdoor art while finding this serpent's lair.

This is on the campus of Stanford University. Parking there is difficult on weekdays until after 4 p.m. After 4, and on weekends, you'll have much less trouble parking -- and it's free! If you must go on a weekday, be prepared to circle a bit, and bring change for the parking machines.

We placed this cache here because we wanted you to see the "serpent." If you look around, you can't miss it -- it's huge and quite striking. There are usually a lot of "geomuggles" around, so be careful when you go tramping around to find our cache. The cache is hidden in a container about 5" x 7". It is camouflaged pretty well with natural material ... PLEASE make sure you cover it at least this well after you find it, or it will surely be found by non-geocachers and may be lost. :( Lots of people come here to visit, so the muggling potential is quite high.
