This is a WSQ cache. WSQ stands for Wisconsin Spirit Quest. All hides so designated are in or immediately adjacent to cemeteries.

If there is a service going on, or folks are visiting their loved ones when you arrive please be respectful and come back at a later time.

WSQ Gordon Cemetery
The coordinates will bring you to the cemetery directory. Once there you will need to look up the location for the gravesite of Antoine Gordon. The directory is also a good place to park and take the short walk to the puzzle and find. Once you have the location for the Antoine Gordon headstone from the directory, you will then need to go to the headstone and solve the easy puzzle to get the proper coordinates. I find it interesting to look through the names in the directory...look up family names and people of interest. You also may want to stop at the Historical Society located in the town site for some interesting history. Coordinates for hide are listed below.
