How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:


• Email me the answers to all four of these questions:

1) A drawing of what object is carved into the ground in the very center?

2) How far away did this village stand?

3) What was the original name of this place, and what is this name today?

4) In what year was this name first used?

Although you may not realize it, you have heard of this area before (well, maybe indirectly, but the name of this area is familiar to you, I hope!) What is it called? You'll have to travel there to find out!

The coordinates will lead you to a round monument near the lakeshore. The land the former village resided on was flooded during the creation of Tellico Lake, but this marker stands as a reminder of the rich history of some of the area's first settlers. As countless signs remind you, this area is of great archeological significance and no objects should be dug up or removed from this site. The surrounding lands are best left undisturbed. It is for this reason that I have not hidden a traditional cache in this area.
