Located in the woods on private property, owner welcomes geochachers. Posted signs read geochachers welcome.

Cache is located by a natural spring. Water comes out of an iron pipe stuck in the bed rock. Long time legend claims water has healing powers. (Spring written about in early settlers diaries.) Religious stuff sometimes left by the spring.

Cache is under a square rock with one corner painted black. Junk store items from 1$$ TO 5$$. Nice place to bring a lunch and enjoy setting.

Beautiful land. Very nice spring. I live across the valley, now I know where all the deer hide out. Placed rock back on top of container.

Our caching team of Bluestone, Killerb, Butterflyguy, and myself came here to find this cache after completing FawCow'ee Challenge by Roadkill just up the road. When we arrived along the road we noticed a fellow parked just below were we parked and then we made our way to the cache. This was a nice bushwhack to this historic site and Butterflyguy made the quick find. We all signed the logbook and hid this back to the way we found it. Finally we arrived back at the road and the fellow was still there and was walking in our direction. As he got closer he asked if we found it and we all replied that we had, and come to find out this was the owner of the cache. We enjoyed our visit with him and he told us of a beautiful waterfall that was just down the road so we all agreed that we wanted to see that too. After finding the trail down to the water fall we were all amazed at the beauty of this area and then the fun began and this is where I began to wonder if Killerb had a death wish or something. You see what happened next was a first for many of us. The cache owners dog began barking furiously a little ways off from where we were standing and I jokingly said said, yeh! , you scare that bear away! and guess what?, he was barking at a bear and the bear was running in our direction, I made tracks as fast as I could in the opposite direction and as well as many of our group did, but Killerb went in the direction of the bear trying to get some good photos, (This is insane!) Anyway we found out why the bear was coming back and that was because she was a momma bear and had 2 cubs up a tree that the dog was standing next to. Finally the dog left and the cubs came down the tree and momma bear and the cubs headed out. Phew! I was glad to finally get back in my truck and head out of there. This was a wonderful memorable experience and Thank you so much bakwoods for the nice cache and for showing us outsiders around. -Paleoman52-
