11/10/02- The cache has been relocated by a few hundred yards, getting it away from the domain of the large timber rattler that took up guard duty near the cache over the summer (see logs). The new location is not far (but a safe distance) from a nice view of the Genesee River Gorge; keep track of the kids! The relocation was kind of a quick hide in the rain and with the woods full of deer hunters, so the first ones to find it may feel free to conceal it a little better than I did (in the same location, of course).

This cache is located near one of my favorite places in Letchworth State Park. It is a 30 cal ammo box, painted gray with black lettering, and contains some tumbled gemstones, a Chinese Army knife, some Red Rose Tea ceramics, a Teenie Beanie dinosaur ("Steg"), some pencils, and, of course, a logbook.

The name, “Penny’s Point” is for my caching buddy, my golden retriever named Penny. For this cache, I let her lead me off the trail in her own direction, and she came up with a pretty good spot. (She’d rather look for caches than place them, though, since after all, she is a retriever ;-).

This cache can be more of a challenge if you don’t use a topo map. The terrain is easy, the cache is located near a pretty good road, and the tree cover is open enough for good satellite access. But unless you’re familiar with the area, getting to it might be most of the fun. Access to the area should be available and easy until the first snow, but then may be blocked off until mid to late spring.

Hunting is permitted in deer season, so wear blaze orange if you visit then. This is a spectacular fall foliage area, and is scenic at any time of year, so take a camera along.
