There were several close races among the dozen geocaches nominated for the February Cache of the Month. Thanks to everyone that nominated and voted, the entire state was very well represented.

Northern Zone - Cheezehead's T.B & Coin & HCH container Barn by Hayward Cheezehead
Difficulty 1
Terrain 1.5

This fun cache is located just a few feet from the roadside. Being a LARGE, is findable any time of the year, and is kept well stocked by the nearby cache owner. "Honk or wave as you drive by."

Northeast Zone - The Expedition by JimandLinda
Difficulty 4
Terrain 5
Size Regular

Several items are required to complete The Expedition, so read the description page carefully. The terrain changes depending on the season, but this multi is a true adventure any time of the year.

West Central Zone - URSA MINOR - YILDUN by bigjim60
Difficulty 2
Terrain 5
Size Micro

A great amount of effort was spent to recreate the Little Bear constellation near the Little Bear Creek in the George Mead Wildlife Area in Central Wisconsin. This one won't disappoint those looking for a high terrain geocache.

South Central Zone - WSQ Old Baptist Union Cemetery (Abandoned) by Smashing Ground
Difficulty 2
Terrain 2

This out of the way WSQ is a true testiment to the power of natural reclaimation. Several Civil War era markers can be found here.

Southeast Zone - black bottom stomp by chevyole

Size Small

Here is another higher terrain geocache that the owner refers to as "Homage to the Lonely Cache Game". With a Howitzer, a time capsule and a great view, this is a must do cache.

Series of the Month - The Muppet Series by Jim Henson (aka froggerz)
Difficulty 2
Terrain 2
Size Regular

A six pack that will have you chasing Muppets on the trails of Whitnal Park near Greenfield. You'll be getting the old band back together by finding the five original members of The Electric Mayhem Band. What could be more fun than Muppet hunting in Southeast Wisconsin?
