An ammo can hidden in the forest. Located not too far from some other caches hidden on the Castile youth Center property. Please do not do this cache at night.

Another cache hide at the vast forest behind the Castile Youth Center. This woods was logged off a few years ago and the money from the timber sale was used to build the present youth center building. This was an 85 acre farm owned by the Chamberlain family, sometime back in the 40's the owners decided to donate all their property to the Village of Castile to be used as a camping and recreational area and the house was used as a hostel for travelers passing through the area. Eventually the girl and boy scout organizations began to use, and currently still use this property for their activities. Parking is available at the youth center and there is a very nice path that leads to the creek, across a small bridge and up into the forest where this cache is hidden. This is basically an old school type of hide. I placed it here because I loved the open areas of the forest that I walked through to get here. In the immediate cache area there are some berry bushes so I don't recommend wearing shorts when you seek this cache. Good Luck!

Another one I noticed I found and hadn't logged here. Found this one with KillerB on a great day of Paleoman caches. Thanks for having all these fun caches in such a great area of the woods. I really enjoy all of your caches and look forward to finishing the ones I've missed.

After completing the nearby Wolf Creek Valley Vista, Chicky and I continued on our wonderful morning hike within this beautiful wooded oasis. Here we were surrounded by the peace and serenity that only Mother Nature can provide. As we slowly closed in on our zero, we were astounded by a massive sea of magical gold fog hovering over the white snow covered earth in the distance.

As we approached this mystical fluttering cloud it grew and expanded as we discovered more and more of it hiding behind the trees. This was such a special sensation and as we finally landed at the cache site, we were so close to this sea of color that you could almost reach out and touch it.

After a short search Chicky located the cache – and for a few minutes we checked out the swag and assorted goodies. We found something special, and while I signed the log Chicky traded appropriately. Following the cache rehid portion of our excellent journey, we dropped our backpacks and gear and busted out the camera in order to capture the natural fog phenomenon occurring so close to the cache site. After snapping a myriad of pictures, we happily hiked further down the trail to explore more of this wonderful area. Eventually we had to turn back as we weren’t sure where we were going, and before getting lost we turned back. But it was worth it as we were once again able to enjoy the hike back out (which meant more importantly we could go play down by the beaver dam again…haha)

Thank you P-Man for introducing us to this special area, and for allowing us to enjoy the mystery and absolute beauty that nature has to offer. Chicky and I were thrilled to spend part of our morning here exploring and snapping photos!
