Description   EN   

But hopes are Shy Birds flying at a great distance seldom reached by the best of Guns. -John James Audubon

In my deepest troubles, I frequently would wrench myself from the persons around me and retire to some secluded part of our noble forests. -John James Audubon

...and with that last quote that is exactly what you'll find. A sanctuary of sorts that will lend it's serenity and beauty to ones soul. If you're lucky you'll happen upon a tree along your walk so full of life. Just don't open your mouth when you look up.

CO archived this cache on crosslisted site for cause.  Is the cache still viable?

WOW.... this was a fantastic little hike. So picturesque were the varied views that I am berating myself for leaving my camera at home. I don't know birds but I do enjoy looking for them. Thanks so much for bringing me here. You rock.

It was so nice outside, I decided to take a walk in this beautiful sanctuary. We used to go to this location when my children were younger, so it was nice to be back again. I crunched the leaves as I walked through the winding trails, crossing wooden bridges, and heard the occasional sound of birds chirping in the tall trees. That wonderful musty smell of leaves perfumed the air. I got to GZ, and found the cache easily. Now I had to find my way back. I guess I should have paid more attention to the way I got there instead of concentrating on the beauty around me, because there are so many turns to the trails. I only made one wrong turn at the end, but quickly realized my mistake.
This IS geocaching - introducing people to an interesting location, where there you take a beautiful trail to get there. It doesn't get much better than this!
Thanks.

I have been wanting to find these caches here since they came out.  We had a great hike on the trails to find this one.  Who would have known this place was here in the middle of the city.  Cache in in great shape.  SL  TFTC
