Tip o' the Mesa...

is the name I have assigned to this new geocache deployed yesterday at the remote northwestern point of Adobe Mesa.  The polystyrene container includes some silly trinkets, a log book, and a dollar bill for the first finder (click images to enlarge):
The container is now hidden in this pile of boulders while my GPS unit gets a good fix on the location so it can be published online, allowing others to take on the fun challenge of finding it:
To complete the process of creating the new geocache I went online yesterday evening and submitted its name, lat/long coordinates, a description of the terrain/difficulty, and an encrypted hint on how to find it once you get close.  I note late this morning that my submission has been reviewed and approved and this information is now publicly accessible, with the locator designation of GC3HB9P.  All you need to do now is go to the website and register (free) to begin to search for 1,723,278 active geocaches worldwide.
