Geocache Description:

Glacial phenomenon or Celtic construct? Either way, a 60 ton balancing act.

The coordinates will lead you to "The Balanced Rock" of North Salem. From appearances, it is an interesting glacial erratic: a hugh boulder that came to rest upon five pegstones as the glaciers withdrew up the Hudson Valley. Some argue however that it is a man-made memorial created by Celtic people for one of their ancient kings - akin to dolmens found in Celtic lands, notably Ireland. Who knows? Maybe, unbeknownst to Leif Ericsson, there were some Celtic stowaways with advanced engineering skills on the trip to Vinland...

By all rights this should be a virtual but I was able to stash this "minicache" (a small camo'ed Lock 'N Lock container) near "The Balanced Rock." This is a quick "dash and grab" but please be discreet and be sure to rehide the cache completely.
