Two stop cache - location one gives info for gettting to the actual cache site. Easy/mild terrain on nature trails in a large park area. Second site is within a mile of the first, although driving is necessary.

Angels and airplanes, but not aardvarks! Butterflies and bumblebees, but not bandanas! Cicadas and chickadees, but not calipers! Dragons and damselflies, but not dandelions! Eagles and egrets, but not elephants! Well, I think you get the idea....from A to Z, our cache is for Winged Things....take one/leave one, just be sure it has wings!! In order to get to it, there is a cleansing stop you must make, but we're sure you'll enjoy the little side trip. If you run into trouble, just look for the wings!!
At N43 15.633, W077 46.496, stand with your back to the setting sun. We chose this location carefully, so before you go any further, close your eyes and simply listen......if you happen to visit on a day with any breeze at all, you'll hear the sweet call of at least four species of our winged friends as well as the calming sound of a dozen chimes or more (you know, I'm sure, that every time a bell rings, another Angel gets their wings)...... we're sure you'll enjoy the beauty, peace and calm! When you're ready, speak with "our special angel" as she is the only one who can provide you the information to find your way from here. She will confide in you two years - take care to record them properly as she will not be able to guide you in person.

From the year of her arrival, subtract 461 and enter the result here:

_ _ _ _

To the year of her departure, add 2702 and enter the sum here:

_ _ _ _

Recalibrate a new waypoint at N43 AB.CD2 and W 077 WX.YZ2 for that is the true resting place of the winged things you seek.

You will (hopefully!) swiftly arrive at a park with plenty of parking, playground equipment, open spaces and activities of all sorts, so feel free to bring the family. We believe you can trek directly to the cache straight as the crow flies if you so desire, but we placed it after wandering about the system of nature trails that lie at the rear of the park - your approach is up to you! It should provide you a comfortable yet enjoyable outing and we hope the unique contents bring a smile to your faces. Hints can be found below, but let us hope they are not needed!

Note: this is a black, 50-caliber ammo can, filled with winged creatures both real and whimsical!

Second geocache find for our family for the day. Was a nice touch and very moving in the first part. My 11 year old son found the clue we needed, and did the math. Second part was found with a little trouble, only because we didn't decode the clue. Some fellow geocachers helped us along, and we took each others picture. Nice to meet people way back in the woods! Took a pencil, left some "winged" Praying Mantises. Had a great time. Thank you for the find.

Our fourth find of the day. We found the first part very easy, but, due to a slight error, we ended up overshooting the final cache. As I wrote down the results from the first stage, I transposed a couple of numbers, and we went about a half mile past the cache. oops! Once I put the right coordinates in, we found it with no problem.
We took a loon dollar, and left a bird keychain, and a half man/half eagle toy. Took picture #20.
Thanks for the hide.

1 of 2 today. We found part 1 very moving. The walk in the park for part 2 was nice. Clever hiding place! The buzzing, itchy winged things weren't too bad, being sunny today. Found the Tip E. Canoe travel bug - our first. We took him to a cache closer to water.

What a nice hike after all the rain! Loads of skeeters on this one, but very nice walk in the woods. Thanks! Took a glider and left behind a die cast airplane.

This was our first cache ever. First spot threw us off a bit as we didnt bring anything with us but the coordinates but we went home and realized what it was. Thanks for the fun. this still is our favorite one yet.

What a day for our second find! With every step we took the snow fell harder and harder. The snow was about 6-8 inches deep and covered our boots as we walked up to the cache! Found the cache with relative ease around 1.30pm, it is still in great condition, plenty of things inside. We saw the body of the Estes Rocket that Lupin saw the nose cone to. Took angel figurine, left butterfly hairclips. If anyone plans to journey to this site they should probably wait a week or two as our deep footprints will lead you right there! Thanks for the great two part adventure, we will defenitely be heading back this spring to explore the trails of that park a bit more, as it is fairly close to our house. Thanks Again!

Beautiful spot with winged things all around. Saw an Estes rocket nose cone and parachute high up in the trees- Another type if winged thing?
Previous person left a travel bug - Tricerezz - which is still there, waiting for the next visitor.
Unfortunately, the single use camera was out of film so I could not take a picture.
Took nothing, left nothing but a small prayer and an angel in the snow at the first site.
Thank you for the outing.

This was the scond find of the day and my wife's first "official" find since she just had to hold the GPSr on the first leg and I waited until she actually found the cache on the second.

We took a batarang for my Batman obsessed daughter and left a deck of Disney playing cards from Disneyworld - Donald's wings were the only ones we had with us...

Thanks for the hide.

Tried to keep my frustration in control due to my total inexperience. Finding the cache took a long time-glad I brought along my niece and nephews to help me search for it. The first waypoint was sad but in a beautiful way. The reward in finally finding the cache was worth it.

I have lived in Hilton for 28 years and have been to the park many times, but never went back to the nature trails. It was a very nice little excursion.

Today is my 40th birthday and this was a great way to enjoy this nice, warm, late-September evening.

Took a pair of butterfly socks for my 14-year old daughter and left a loonie.

We went after this one on our way back from Hamlin. The kids and I paid much respect at the first. I had a neat conversation with my son and 5 year old Ashley.

Got to the second sight in a minute, but to my surprise,
Casey didn't want to go after the cache with me. The park
(that we didn't know about until now) was absolutely
magnificent. The kids played on the BIG jungle gym, and watched the skateboarders do tricks on the ramps.

I found the nicely stocked cache with no problem. Left nothing and took nothing but exercise. Signed the log, too, and put cache back as found.

Thanks for the hide!

Issaquah Puppy and I found it! It was our 4th cache of the day. Being in the shady woods was nice, but I was being attacked by various winged things, so I made a brief log entry, and got back out of there.

This was my evening for travelling, and this was the perfect midpoint for my three-cache night. Had no trouble with the Angel, and spent some time reflecting on things at the first site. Set off calm and determined to add my wings to the stash. How pretty it was back there! The mosquitos had a feast while I wrote in the log, traded my items, and took a picture of my hand holding the trusty GPS48 (I was travelling alone, that's the best I could do)! Took a George bill and a pack of stationery, left a george bill and a butterfly pin that belonged to my grandmother (I think she was attracted to shiny objects sometimes). Sorry I didn't fold the bill into a plane, that was a great idea! Unfortunately the plane had done some time at the bottom of the box and was no longer flightworthy. :)

A beautiful location, I knew right where to look when I got nearby. I'll be going back to that park for sure!

Hey! So we were sucsessful today. We went out on the trail last Saturday and to our delight met a great cacher, Q. Chatted a long time but never compared notes. We had been to the cemetary earlier and discovered many beautiful angels. Even left 2 rose wreaths and some tears at a young ones. But the paths they sent us on were wrong ..... so left with Fearless first nonfind.

Today...the sun was shinning and we brought with us a lucite angel to leave at stage one. The sats. were with us cause as we opened our eyes from the peaceful request.....we turned an found her.

Her directions led us once again to the same park but this time a spatter ball contest was going on. We envisioned leaving the trails rainbow colored but instead found a responsible group of young guys who were taken with Foo the wonder dog. They waited as we hiked in and only went back on the trails after we left.

The cache was in great shape and nicely stocked. The girls chose a little puzzel and fairy tatoos....they looked alot like our angel who blesses our lives every day!

Speaking of her.....she planted a cache she is very proud of... THE HOBBIT BAG - END CACHE if you are ever up our way please check it out. We put our best prizes and truely amazing scenery into this one

Another nice park that we hadn't been aware of. Visited on a nice day after several days of heavy rain, and the beginning of the trail was under water. Found what appeared to be a spot I could jump across, but the dry spot on the other side was leaf cover with four inches of water under under it. Should have worn boots instead of sneakers. Mrs.B and Penny stayed dry at the trailhead. The rest of the trail was fine, found the cache fairly quickly, GPS disagreed with posted coords by 30 feet. Took a picture with the cache camera, left a Kennedy half dollar (it has an eagle on the back to fit the theme). Resoaked the same foot on the way back. Thanks for the mini-adventure!

This was a bonus beautiful day all around......and in a town with a terrific name. Unfortunately we met angels that headed us in the wrong direction. Found angels lining a marker and she gave us her directions and on the way out a 7 year old angel who gave us another set of directions while I read and realized her story. Although we couldn't trade at the cache site we did at the resting site. Brought flowers and put 2 mini wreaths on the first site we found and tears at the last.......Our youngest has had many trips to the hospital.

As an added bonus we met Quinn as we headed into the trails. He was sporting the best GPS and was a wealth of info on the sport......OK I like to talk and when you meet such interesting people...the kids were trying to push us onto the trails that was until Quinn talked about some great caches......Eversure son is way into a challenge!!!

We will definately be back and with more flowers! The resting place was alive with sounds, people and beautiful decorations!

Thanks for the adventure

On a nice day as today was I got a break between jobs to go out and find this cache.

Waypoint one was just as you mentioned, the wind was there and the chimes good be heard in the distance.
A great way to keep a person in someones thoughts.

At waypoint two I never knew this portion of the park existed. I have been here several times with my daughter to play on the play ground up front but did not know the trails were here as well. what a nice area!

Seems like this cache was popular today as I just missed the "Fourpack" from what the log book said, and after I was on my way back to the truchk I bumped into a great looking family that goes by the name "Hilton Family"
We chatted for a few but I could see the youngsters wanted to get on the way to the cache so we went our seperate ways.
The cache container is in great shape and the items were very nice indeed. I had nothing to trade as I was working, but did leave a couple of "George Bills" shaped like planes to keep in the line of "Winged things"
I took a pix of self with your camera and placed the cache back as I found it.

You did a great job on this cache and I can't thank you enough for the time you invested in placing it just so that others could enjoy the fun and share a thought or two.

Thank you!

some pix with this report but all safe to look at and no cache give-away clue's!
