Geocache Description:

A virtual tour of my hometown, with 2 waterfalls to marvel at, and a spectacular view at the end!

Each stage has parking within sight of the coordinates, except for the final. Please use the suggested parking for the final, as it will lead you past a very interesting view of town.

Stage 1 - N 43° 51.391 W 080° 04.580 - Millcroft Falls
The Millcroft Inn is Altons most famous feature, and often wines and dines politicians and the local elite. It is housed in an old mill, and runs along side a waterfall made of the credit river.

How many Vertical metal bars are used in the contruction of the pedestrian/traffic barrier on this bridge?
A = ___

Stage 2 - N 43° 51.496 W 080° 04.572 - The Spa
You are looking for a sign in the nearby forest that is adjacent to the spa.

What Year Were Huey, Dewey & Louie Thinned?
1 9 9 ____ = B

Stage 3 - N 43° 51.523 W 080° 04.279 - Alton Mill
Another old mill in the area. When I lived here this building was abandonned, and a great place to play! It is now an artists studio.
What year is displayed over the padlocked basement door?
What is the third digit in the date (C)? 1 9 ____ 3

Stage 4 - N 43° 51.602 W 080° 04.152 - Ray's Bakery
Rays Bakery has really great food. Thats why I originally came to town when I placed the cache. The Debit machine didnt work at the place when I went so they ended up giving me everything for free... Next maintenance visit I will pay them back!
WARNING: If there was ever a cache that required a 'horribly addictive pastries' attribute icon, this would be it. If you have a weakness for pastries, Sundays would be the best day to go as they are closed.

What is Rays Street Address?
1 4 7 ____ = E

Parking and Trailhead to Final= N 43° 51.AB2 W 080° 04.2EE

Final Coordinates= N 43° 51.EE2 W 080° 04.ECC Hoped you liked my tour of town!
