It was beside a big rock... nearly the size of a small car.  Problem was it
was about 500 meters from the nearest trail.

It was my responsibility, therefore the damage was my fault.  I'm absolute
NOT saying that someone with more experience than I had at the time could
not make a cache with less impact.  My cache was damaging an area I cared
for... so I did not replace it.

> was "a rock in the woods" hidden in such a manner
that it was not easily found or that the clues didnt help
in the finding of the cache..and therefore people searched
everywhere trying to find it?
Out west what a lot of cachers do in a forested area is
place a piece of flagging tape over the cache hide..making
it easy to find the cache once you get to the area and
also protecting the area by not having to look everywhere
for it..
its great to walk through a park area on a trail and stay
on the trail..but once off it, make the hide in such a way
so that we dont destroy the surrounding vegetation..
flagging tape is a great way of doing this in my opinion
and it limits the area that needs to be searched
