This Tuesday, Oct 22 will be a planning meeting about the Lion's Den area. Many of you have been on the cache there. This is a fantastic parcel of land so if you have any interest in it, check the link and represent Geocacher's well.

Steve,

When Arn & I hunted that cache, we had entered the wrong co-ordinates for the actual Den. After finding and logging the cache, our GPSR said the den was a mile or so away out by RT 32. Not knowing what the 'den' was, we hiked back out and drove to the location, just to see a house there. Figured it was the home of the cache placer, and kept going. So we ended up missing the whole point of the cache, the Lion's Den Gorge.

Thanks for the link you left, as it had lots of info, maps, and pictures of the gorge, giving us an idea of what we missed! We plan on making a trip back to see it. If you go to the meeting, would you mind summarizing on this thread what happens?

Thanks!

Alan

Hmmm, now I know why the cache was called Lion Den. I had now idea that this area was so significant. This cache still ranks as one of my favorite locations. I love the gorge and all the fallen trees with the tributary running through it. Cool spot!

Read this in the Metro North section of the paper this morning, just an FYI on the future of this beautiful spot.
