Secret Caves [Scrt]

There are many Secret Caves in the game that you can find.  They're usually
found inside a circle of small rocks.  Here's an area-by-area list of where to 
find them.  This is in the order you visit the areas in.  I'll also list the 
contents of each Secret Cave.

---------------
Kokiri Forest

- There's really only one secret here. Head near the entrance of Lost Woods to
find a Gossip Stone. Play the Song of Storms near it to reveal the Secret Cave.
CONTENTS: Gossip Stone and a treasure chest with a Red Rupee inside.
---------------
Lost Woods

- After exiting the Sacred Forest Meadow, bomb the rock you find there.
CONTENTS: Two Business Deku Scrubs.  One sells a Deku Nut Upgrade and one sells
Deku Seeds.

- Enter Lost Woods via Kokiri Forest, turn right, left, and blast the 
boulder with a bomb.
CONTENTS: Gossip Stone, and small chest containing a Blue Rupee

- Enter Lost Woods via Kokiri Forest, turn right, left, right, left and 
left again.  There's a bunch of grass here, hiding the entrance to a Secret
Cave.  Find the butterflies, as they are near or above the entrance. You must 
be a child in order to do this, though.
CONTENTS: The Forest Stage. This is a cave with a bunch of Deku Scrubs who are 
absolutely judgmental about masks.  You can get a couple of upgrades here.
---------------
Hyrule Field

- Face the entrance to Hyrule Castle, then start heading towards the entrance
to Kakariko Village.  Stop when you get past the little bridge and head to the 
tree near the castle walls.  Plant a bomb at the foot of the tree to reveal the 
hole.
CONTENTS: A Skulltula and Gold Skulltula behind cobwebs.

- Head back to the entrance of Hyrule Castle and go left this time, following
the wall closely.  There's some trees here and a boulder.  Blast open the 
boulder to reveal a Secret Cave.

river.  Plant a bomb at the foot of the lone tree to reveal yet another Secret 
Cave.

- There's another one near here. Go to the other side of the river and
blast/break the boulder to reveal this one.
CONTENTS: A Fairy Fountain

big boulder surrounded by a circle of little stones.  Break the boulder first, 
then plant a bomb in the center of the circle of stones to reveal this Secret 
Cave.

cobwebs.
