Chac, as depicted in The Dresden Codex 
The coordinates at the top of the page are for the municipal water tower in Pendleton, N.Y.; the cache is not located at those coordinates. The cache is located within a three mile radius of the listed coordinates.

To find this cache, you must decipher the codex below, written in the language of an ancient culture. With a little research on Chac, you should easily be able to determine the ancient culture in question. You'll then have to research and become fluent with their numbering system to get the coords for the actual cache. This culture used no decimal points, but once you're on the right track with the solution, it should be totally obvious where you need to place them. Deciphering the two heiroglyphic figures in the picture will be helpful, but not necessary.

As far as the cache itself, you can find parking about .25 miles west of it. The cache is not far off a trail, but you'll be in for a short dose of heavy duty bushwacking. I recommend long pants all times of the year, and bug spray in season. I'm no botanist, but I do believe there is a small amount of poison ivy in the area.

The container is a 7 Qt. cylindrical Lock-N-Lock container, wrapped in camo tape. It contains only small quality trade items and a logbook, so there should be quite a bit of space left over for trading or TB's.
