This cache has been archived.

LavaLizard: As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements.

If the cache owner addresses the issues that lead to archival and contacts me within a reasonable period of time (6-8 weeks), it [i]may[/i] be possible to unarchive the cache.

Geocache Description:


With the 2006 Winter Olympics just finished, this cache is placed in dedication to all the athletes that strive to compete at this level. There are also very few caches in this area, so I thought it would be good to have a freeway accessible cache here.

The cache location is a living tribute to the Olympics, but is unfortunately placed in a location where probably not too many people notice. In fact, the area is not the best, but should be OK during daylight hours. I would not recommend visiting this spot at night.

Note that there is a plaque near the cache location paying tribute to someone named 'Jesse Robinson' that I have not been able to find any information on. If anyone knows anything about him, please log the information!

Cache container should not be new to most cachers. Large enough for a log, a short pencil and small trades only.

UPDATED 1/6/2008: Replaced previous cache, which was destroyed due to a complete, and well needed, refurbishment of the park. The cache was moved slightly from the original location and is an easier find than before. We choose not to relocate to the original location due to the newly installed landscaping, which the old cache location would have spoiled from multiple visits from geocachers. THANKS to the Mayor and City Council of Compton for seeing the need to fix the eyesore that this park had become. Just in time for Olympic fever to hit again later this year!
