Nominations for May 2011 Cache of the Month are now open (from now till April 30th). For full details check here, but the short version - if you find an outstanding cache, reply to this post with the caches name and what made it so special that you want to nominate it for Cache of the Month!

Hey we MIGHT get rid of the snow this month, so get out and find those caches and share them by nominating them for Cache of the Month!

I am nominating Minnehaha Falls as the May 2011 Cache of the Month. The beauty of Minehaha falls is amazing and even more in the winter (when I found it). Thanks to seeingitdifferent for hiding the cache and to: msteffel for organizing the cache of the month.

I'd like to nominate Sapphire Surprise: Gurojo Nets 2K! by salsman & mazzmn

I'll start by saying that this puzzle cache is definately tricky. It's not something that every geocacher is even interested in because there's barely any indication what to do to find the final coordinates. I know that the owners of this cache are more than willing to help fellow geocachers to solve puzzles, so even if you HATE puzzles, at least send an e-mail...it might end up easier than you think. Smile

This geocache is deserving of COTM for at least a couple reasons:
--The puzzle is rewarding to solve. There's a neat trick you'll use, then chug your way through a little work to find the answer. There are wrong paths you can take and a couple twists, but that's what makes the solve rewarding.
--The cache container, placement and park which it is located in are high quality. The walk is nice and sceneic throught the park with many other caches to visit. The placement is fun, but not too challenging. The owners put some time and effort into the container and it's quality swag.

This time of year is great for geocaching in Oxbow Park with many wildflowers along the trails...and OF COURSE it's worth the trip...there are almost two dozen caches in the park for your enjoyment.

I'll nominate Cache a Falling Star from mnfishnutz and Troutonthebrain

This was a clever hide and a great location and just a lot of fun to find (partly as part of a big WNC event, but nice in and of themselves).

Between this one and it's neighbor Vista Plymouth they are a pair of nice caches.

I never knew there was a "shooting star" TYPE of hide until someone told me about this hide last winter. I have used this technique several times in the past. The term is interesting..

I would like to nominate GC2TK22 1000 stories - Jo_botmn style for cache of the month.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=1264702e-42b4-4a8c-8d5b-48056d005811

This is a NEW unique cache that has a few twists to it. It has only been out for a few days but has to be one of my favorite caches in quite some time. It is in Willmar Mn so it probably won't get many visits.. If you get a chance to get out to this area I highly reccomend trying to find this cache.

If you look at my post you will see what I thought of the cache.
