Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the given coordinates. These coordinates, however, mark a convenient parking area from which to begin your quest. There's a nice set of trails that will lead you to the cache once you puzzle out where to go.


A young scientist with an interest in vexillology recently checked out the complete works of Sir Charles Wheatstone. Tucked between the pages of the weighty tome, was an envelope containing a strange photograph with a coded message written on the back.

Can you help our intrepid scientist/explorer decrypt the message and find the hidden treasure?

The Photo:

The message:

GT YT GT TZ NM PT IU MQ TZ SI NM

PT YE PS FT MY BZ TS EP QI SP YH

GT YP QI SP TW CK ER GU YM
