This geocache even has a trailer.

Geocache Name: White Water (GC6B6A) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 3.5/3.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Did you see the picture? It looks like it’s photoshopped, but we can assure you it’s not.

After the Lord of the Ring movies were filmed here, the entire town transformed with hobbit-like architecture to welcome LOTR fans from around the world. In between first and [...]
