My how this area has changed in a short time. This cache is placed near the site of the CNW Clinton Car Shops. A lot of change has happened in this area, and a lot of change is yet to come, but let's not forget our history.
This cache is pretty much a park and grab so will be easy to get the smilie, so spend a little time catching up on some of Clinton's history before you run out and grab it! ~
