Geocache Description:

Definitely a hike, but well worth the effort.

The cache is located in a spot that will give one with the fortitude to find it unparalleled views of the Mississippi. For those who have taken in the vista at nearby Mt. Hosmer, you might consider this Mt. Hosmer times 10. The hike is about a mile and a half, of which the first half will make it unnecessary for you to hit the gym for the day. As with hiking anywhere in the area, be sure to apply bug spray for ticks and skeeters.

The cache is an ammo can filled with some good swag that I picked up at Horsefalls in town.

When placed, the cache contained:

Toy pig with authentic barnyard sounds
Indoor/outdoor thermometer
Pencil bag with ruler and eraser
6" scented candle
Trio of the ugliest clowns ever seen
New parents' survival kit
Band-Aid
1987 quarter
Red anodized keychain tool thingy
Devil Duck travel bug

The cache is not located exactly where the view is, so be sure to explore, carefully, the area for the amazing views. Because of the tree cover near the cache, my GPSr was bouncing between 15-30 ft. There are a few ways up, but the easiest would be to park at 43'21.339 091'13.188.

As there are others that enjoy the area, please be sure to replace exactly as you found it and cover it well.
