TheAprilFools: Coming by to check on this one after it had gone missing AGAIN! I first walked up and there was a muggle sitting at the bench, I walked past slowly and up to the next trail junction and then turned back to see if he had left. On approaching I saw a couple sitting at another bench a short ways away with GPS's in there hands, turns out it was wildbun and jasmerb trying to waiting out the same muggle. We talked for a bit and finally the muggle moved on and we were able to search the site and confirm the cache was gone.

Since I have now lost 6 containers as this site I am going to archive this cache. Its a really nice spot and I hope someone else will have better luck with it, but for me its the black hole for caches.

It was really nice meeting wildbun and jasmerb and I hope you are able to luck find a 'Q' cache soon.

Geocache Description:

A water proof cylinder hidden just off the main trail. Only small trade items, bring your own pen.

This cache is hidden in the Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation area, part of the East Bay Regional Park District, in Fremont California.

Quarry Lakes incorporates the historic boundaries of two Mexican ranchos and the former Mission San Jose lands. Alameda Creek was the original boundary between Contra Costa and Santa Clara Counties. Alameda County was carved out of these two counties in 1853 and was named after the creek that drains it.

The quarries for which Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area is named were established in the mid-19th century. Gravel taken from the banks of Alameda Creek was used in the construction of the transcontinental railroad's western section.

The cache itself is hidden just off the Wood Duck Trail, near a information sign describing the Riparian Restoration that is going on at this location. Please read this sign to learn to discover what it means. Please note you are not required to read the sign to log this cache. This should not be considered a quick drive by as the closest legal parking to this site is at the Isherwood Staging Area parking lot off Isherwood Way near Paseo Pardre Parkway. You can park at this location without fee, proceed down the trail next to Alameda Creek until you find one of two gates that allow access into the park. If you go through the parks main gate there is a $5.00 parking fee, an annual pass to all parks in the East Bay Regional Park District is available for $50.00.

The coordinate where checked using two GPSr's and were allowed to settle until they both matched. Initial contents include Steve Martin Buttons #634, #635 and #636.

Congratulations to JimmiGee on collecting the FTF.
