ynots4: 3 DNFs and I know this one is missing. 11 years was a pretty long run and I wish to give up this location now, as I no longer have time to keep replacing or maintaining this letterbox with the ongoing homeless situation and resulting park clean-ups. It was fun while it lasted. Sorry to all who came under unpleasant circumstances or when it wasn't there. We hid 4 Letterbox Hybrid Caches for the 4 Seasons - now just Winter and Spring are left. Signing out. ~ ynots4

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This cache is a Letterbox Hybrid - one of a set of letterboxes that we are hiding in Santa Cruz County to celebrate the Four Seasons of the geocaching year! Unlike most caches, Letterboxes are designed to encourage artistic expression rather than trading of trinkets. For more about the pure form of Letterboxing go to Letterboxing North America.

The coordinates above take you to a monarch butterfly habitat, which is about 290 feet from the cache (as of 7-10-05). Go to the coordinates posted above, then use the directions below to find the cache. Look for a tupperware container containing a logbook, rubber stamp, stamp pad, pen and stash note. PLEASE LEAVE ALL OF THESE ITEMS IN THE CACHE.

Other guidelines:
- In the logbook use the pen to identify yourself and the date of your find. Include with your entry your personal rubber-stamped impression, sticker, doodle OR a poem about the season you are visiting.
- Stamp your personal logbook with the rubber stamp in the cache as a keepsake. (You may wish to put the name of the cache and date on it.)

- Trade items are not required but there is room for sig items. I prefer you not leave TBs since this cache has a history of being muggled.

Directions from the Monarch Butterfly Habitat to the Cache:
The coordinates take you to where the monarchs fly. Behind you is the main trail. Take the main trail left, toward the beach. When you come to a canopy of eucalyptus and cypress, go left between 2 large eucalyptus trees. Directly ahead you will see some old fallen trees. You may sit here to contemplate the ocean and find the cache hidden in a shelter of wood, ice plant and bark. No poison oak here. Yay!

See the pictures for more general hints.
Enjoy the Four Seasons!!! - Chickasaw
