Cache Quest Series

The Detroit Institute of Art has placed copies of 40 paintings in various places in the metro area to celebrate its 125th anniversary. They have included a series of caches associated with some of the paintings - a cache quest series.

THE LILY POND by Charles Harry Eaton

For nearly 20 years this park was literally in our back yard. Our son ran here as the captain of the Belleville cross country team and both of our daughters worked for the park at the pool which no longer exists. This grove and the water park are new since we retired but we have hiked, skied and biked from one end to the other. Signed the log and left a flask of hand sanitizer. Thanks for the fun and the memories.

What a great sounding series! We decided to start on it today and do the ones closest to where we are staying in Ann Arbor. We lived in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti/Belleville area for more than 35 years. We have had some good times in this park. Signed the log and left a magic frog. As we recall, this area was named Frog Island.
