As suggested by Mr.Waldo, me and my wife BellaTerra, we hit the trail quite early this morning. So the sun was still beneath the mountains when we arrived at the cache site.

What a wonderful scenery all the way to and from the selected cache location (photos).

I was quite proud to be qualified for this exceptional challenge.

Actually I am on a 6 week trip across the USA and on my way back home. I had some great mountain hikes during this trip as I the one I had going up to the TurtleHead Mnt in Nevada.

This whole trip gave me a glimpse of the best places where I have to come back and stay longer to better explore their area.

This actual location is certainly one of these. Too bad that it is actually under a severe fire danger alert. Hope the rain will come back on you! Quite different over here compared to the thunderstorms and tornadoes I encountered later in Oklohoma and Missouri!

I have to thank you for all of your excellent instructions and intermediates waypoints. Using these, our hike was very cool to do.

Evaluating the requirements for this cache is like doing something as a monk job but yet it help bringing back some nice memories.

As for some geology, it was nice to look at granite up there while there was much grey dolostone at the base of these mountains.

Take care and happy geocaching!

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
