New Lovers Leap
This cache has been in place for 9 years as of 3-2013. I have since become a senior citizen and the trek down the rocks is a real challenge now. So, with that in mind I have decided to move it up to the top of the bluff. The cache is much smaller now, but it is not a micro. It holds a log but no pencil. The new coordinates should be correct at the top of the page now.
This site has been known as Lovers Leap for at least 100 years. I have never heard of any lovers leaping from here. A leap from this rock would surely be deadly.
On the boulder below behind the fence you will see a replica of the poetic lines carved in the rock here by Thomas W. Farrar in 1827. Thomas W. Farrar was the founder and first Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge in Alabama. This site was donated to the public in 1935 by Jonah W. Schwab. The work was done and the original fence was provided by Thomas W. Martin and George B. Ward. A new fence was built and placed there in February, 2004.
If you want to experience what the 123 dedicated geocachers went through to find the cache at the bottom take a short hike down the left side.
Be sure to check out the names on the rocks to the left of the fenced in area. Some of them are well over 75 years old. My grandson Chace and I hid this one the afternoon after hiking the area. I had to stop 2 times on the way back up, but of course he ran most of the way. Have fun and enjoy the view here.
