How Geocaching Works

This cache is a short way off the highway, about a quarter of a mile.
The area used to be a huge granite mountain, but years ago the railway blasted it down and crushed it up for ballast for use on the railway tracks. The crushed granite from here was enough to cover half-way across Canada and down into the U.S. Midwest. Now it is nearly a flat area with lots of crusher chips around and little growth.
The container is a 9 X 9 X 14 inches high old plastic wash soap container. It is painted black to match the colours of the rock in the area. It can only be seen looking in an easternly direction. The following is a list of the original contents...
1. A welcome cache finder letter in a zip locked bag.
2. Disposable flash camera in a zip locked bag. Please take a self-portrait or a shot of a companion!

Question: Why did they leave a little bit of the mountain? Quality or too many pink and white veins?
