Geocache Map Symbols

What does the question mark symbol mean on the geocache map? We recently decided to start geocaching. It looks like lots of fun. Does anyone know what the question mark symbol on the geocache map means?

A question mark indicates an "unknown" cache--what that usually means is there is some sort of puzzle involved that you must solve in order to get the coordinates. They have a very devoted following--some puzzles are amazingly complex, others relatively simple. People get hooked on the puzzles!

If you are in Seattle, you ought to visit Groundspeak HQ; they are the founders of the geocaching.com website, and people make visits to Seattle just to go there!

Our family has been geocaching nearly ten years; it is a great activity!
