Geocache Description:

A great way to spend an hour. A superb view of Discovery Bay. An awesome museum created totally by hand, of rocks and cement, built from 1949 , over a ten year period.

Come and see the miniature village, windmills, fairy castles, the huge landscape representing Puget Sound. Then peer into a pioneer schoolroom, a Native American camp, blacksmith's forge, or just make a wish with the lady at the wishing well. There are authentic 1950's style motel cabins, (we have stayed in a couple of motels that were just like this!). And it's all free. You can stop by, at any time. Ernie, the current owner will be delighted to talk to you about the museum, but will not tell you where to find the cache. This is a museum in which you are allowed to touch things, just leave them as you found them.
This is a multi stage cache- there were so many places to hide a waypoint. This was almost a ten-stage cache. But I restrained myself.
The first waypoint is kind of hard, and the second is more difficult ( it's a small plastic tube, well camouflaged.) The final may keep you there for a while (it's also well camoflaged.)
