while out with Woodlandnomad yesterday he mentioned arranging caches in a picture and pointed this one out to me.
GC29A92 its a kokopelli.
Im impressed considering that they are not mystery caches and can put the ? anywhere so this took some thought.
and I bet this guys name is LUE GC1KNXD.
I know there are more of them out there but are hard to find.

WOW, that is impressive! Especially the archs. Just creating a simple "Z" for the Zeroes to Heroes caches took a little noodling. I can't imagine getting all the cords worked out for this one. Must have used some kind of grid. I have couple others like that. A wave pattern for the Laughing Water series, an "A" for Artisans of Appleton (when I get enough of those published) and a "Horns Up" when I get around to publishing my Mosters of Rock series.

What I like even more is not just the symbol and magnitude but the names of the caches in the series.

Looks like it spells "No Clue" when you zoom out far enough.

Makes sense on the "No Clue." All of them in the series are Miss/Mrs/Mr Whatever with the Whatnot.

Isn't there an alien head by the ET highway?

I can't imagine the amount of work that went into those. I did a 7 cache representation of the Little Dipper GC23TWD and that took quite a bit of work. Still wasn't able to get it exactly how I wanted it, due to DNR rules on geocache placement, so I had to settle for close enough.

Ditto there, s|s. And the eye is a multi and the tops of the hair are unknowns. And there's a star behind the figure.

Gotta have a big desert for something this grand.
