Nazgul: This cache has gone missing and the location may be compromised. I think it's time to open this fine location up to something new, and hopefully really good.

Thanks to all who visited and the over 500 finders of this cache over the last 14 years. Special thanks goes to STP Ron who has done the last few cache replacements and has helped keep an eye on it.

Geocache Description:

A micro in a historic corner of a local park. Park trails are accessible from here, unless you're a dog. Official hours are 0800 to sunset. Wheelchair and kid friendly. It's a fun place to look around (say hi to the chickens) and they hold fun events here for children.

Should be an easy find. Please bring your own pen. Use caution when walking around the old barn area and the nearby rocks in warmer seasons as rattlesnakes can be found here. When I was here scouting for the new location for this cache, there was a deer about thirty feet away snacking on the plants.

UPDATE: May 16, 2007. Because the old hide had been muggled two or three times, I moved the replacement cache to a new location. It remains identical to the old hide though. The cache is now slightly bigger (Altoids tin) and starts with a new logsheet, a couple of zombies and a few plastic beads.

Update October 2007: Thanks to John Darrance (STP Park Interpreter) and our own GBA diplomatic envoy Sammydee for pointing out that you can get a De Anza Trail stamp for your National Park passport book at the barn here on Fridays and Saturdays.

Congratulation to DeafPower for being the 500th finder of this cache on 9/30/17.
