6 March 2006 #1050 Don't Blink *** (and FTF)
Solving the puzzle for the coordinates to this cache required finding another cache to retrieve the puzzle. Once I saw the type of puzzle, I knew I could find the coordinates in minutes. I solved the puzzle on Saturday evening and we were off into the woods on Sunday for this milestone and a rare first-to-find. When we got to the parking area, we were also happy to see that two other unfound caches were available in this same area of the ANF. The third cache, Coal Hard Cache was about 5 miles round trip from the parking area.
It was a perfect day. All three caches were well done and the hike was outstanding. Bright, blue February skies and snow. We both regretted not bringing cross country skis. This was one of the few ANF places where we ran into multiple cross-country skiers as wel hiked. It was perfect skiing weather. Coal Hard Cache was an outstanding cache with a container hidden in a nice area of rocks.
