Found it Annie & PB found Stepped Waters (Central Plateau)

Monday, February 2, 2009North Island, New Zealand

Well, we had no idea how to access this one, so we followed Mrs Nuvi’s advice as to the closest parking/access. And we got to a hydro station, and a set of steps – to which we thought the cache title referred – we begun our ascent and soon found ourselves fighting with blackberry. At the point when Annie got wacked across the face by a head high bit, a retreat was in order. At another time of the year with less vegetation, we think this could be a good way to go as it had like a wonderful secret garden/hidden pathway type feel to it. However, we returned to the van, and consulted the good old Legend in more detail. We discovered that there was another road just a bit further along that might also take us close to the cache. And a good thing we did, as we actually got to see the gates being opened. Actually we pretty much saw it twice, as at our first location we caught the end of the water being released and saw the rapids – from a distance, and by the time we’d discovered we were on the wrong path, gone back down, found the correct access, walked up to the cache, found it (which was a little mission in itself) and walked back down again, it was 10mins until the next gate opening, so we decided to wait and watch!! Altogether one of those enjoyable random adventures that geocaching takes you on. Thanks! TNLN

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
