Geocache Description:


This is one of the many popular versions of Pandora's box

After Prometheus had stolen fire from heaven and then had given it to men on earth, Zeus, decided to take

hisrevenge. He commanded Hephaestus, and Athena to create a woman out of earth. When she was made,

all the gods in heaven bestowed upon her their greatest gifts

However, Pandora had one flaw - she was extremely curious

Zeus gave her a little box. He told her never to open that box

Every day Pandora wondered what was in the box. 

The mysterious box weighed heavily on Pandora’s mind. What was in the box?

One day, when Pandora was overcome by curiosity

She finally could stand it no longer, and opened the box!

She slipped off the cover and looked in.

The spirits of evil, greed, sickness, plague, hatred and all the other cruel things that freeze the heart and bring on old age.

flew from the box, and scattered over the earth. Pandora threw the lid back on the box, but it was too late

But wait, all is not yet lost! For within the jar there still resides hope for all mankind.

As long as that hope remains , we will never succumb to evil and despair


That was ancient history , now at present day the box has returned

To find the box ,who has the code for the cache you first have to find the spirits

Each spirit will “give” you a piece of the code and a additional hint

At one point you will have the destiny of mankind in your hands , don’t be Epimetheus (husband of

Pandora and brother of Prometheus)who was notorious for having no foresight and always think, not

beforebut afterwards

around a lake in a very heavily mountainous area
