We were celebrating Valentine's Day in town with a show and a cache. We had thought about going for he cache first, but we got a late start and hit the theater first instead. While we were inside, the wind had picked up and the temperature had dropped, but we were still up for the cache hunt.

We had reviewed this cache before coming and we had a couple of options. Chose one, then made the hike to the cache. There had been some snowshoers previously, but ours were the only new tracks being made on the trail this afternoon. Got closer to GZ, then came upon the great view of the water. Took some pics, then continued on for the cache. Clue was excellent, and before long the cache was in hand. Swapped a token for a token, but had the container tip over on the icy snow. Got everything back inside, then rehid the cache well, although it should be safe from any accidental finds until the winter decides it's through with central Wisconsin for the year.

Although this was a quiet spot away from the hubbub of the Dells, we could hear the constant stream of traffic going by on the distant interstate. And as we made our way back to the car, some snow started to spit down. It was time to get ourselves some heart-shaped doughnuts. Thanks for the great cache in this wonderful location, Hotdogs!

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.
