SJC- 2 - Candles In The Wind

8:45 pm - Interesting backstory here. There was a baseball game going on, so street parking was scarce and I didn't want to pay for parking, so I tried to go in the back entrance. After a long walk through the field towards the object, I couldn't find a safe way across the creek, so I went back to my car.

Ignoring my autorouter, I went the long way back around and entered in the standard way. There was no one at the gate, so I just went right in. It looked like they were about to close up and lock the gates though so I had to be quick.

There was only one problem - I couldn't find the object. I knew it was around here somewhere, I just spot it from where I was. I went from one end to the other while it got dark, finding nothing. Evading the rangers, I took a turn and spotted it through the trees. The hint made finding the cache not too hard.

I quickly made my way back to the car, hoping that they hadn't closed the gates and locked me in. Nope. Whew. Thanks for the interesting cache.
