Geocache Description:

There's a sentimentality to the old John Denver song entitled "Take Me Home Country Roads" that those of us who have grown up in the Iowa countryside embrace.
This one not so winter friendly.


A former Iowan who moved to California and is now "surrounded by endless rivers of concrete" waxed poetic about the gravel roads of her youth:

"What I thought symbolized the lack of progress now signifies a connection with the land. When I get back home and have the opportunity to drive over those old low-mainenance roads, I am able to get a feel for the land.I am not on some generic freeway using mile markers as references. Instead, I navigate on a more intimate level. I do miss the gravel roads of my youth. I miss the way they speak to my senses, how they tell stories about the land and its people, and how they never fail to evoke a sense of wonder and set my imagination in motion. They do more than just serve a practical purpose of getting people from here to there.....they add to the beauty and charm that is the Iowa countryside."

You need to drive a gravel road to find this cache.
