This cache is hidden to honor BIGBROTHERBEAR's 2000th find. I was able to get BBB interested in geocaching and boy did he ever get interested. He has produced some awesome geocaches and always loves to chase the stars and fill his grid. The caching adventures with BBB are also fun and enjoyable. So far the police have only questioned us and then let us go. This cache should be fun and enjoyable for all and is located in one of the most beautiful wildnerness area's in Iowa.
This cache will bring you to the South East section of White Water Canyon, this section is know as Lost Canyon. Bridging the lines between Dubuque, Jackson and Jones counties, Whitewater Canyon Wildlife Area is one of the jewels in the Dubuque County & Jones County Conservation Board system. This 419 acre area is open for public hunting during state designated hunting seasons so please wear your orange when necessary. It is also a favorite with hikers, wildlife-watchers, and anglers dipping a line in Whitewater Creek. During periods of sufficient water, it is also floated by canoer's and kayaker's. Winter provides areas to snowshoe and cross-country ski. One of only three true canyons in the State of Iowa, the walls of Whitewater provide a lesson in the state's geology taking one back 450 million years to a time when what is now Iowa was under the sea. Rare plants and animals are also sheltered in the various natural communities found on the property so remember to take only pictures and leave only footprints.
You will not have to do much bushwacking if you follow the nicely mowed trail that leads you close to the cache. There should be plenty of trade items for the kids so bring out the family and enjoy a nice scenic hike. Operating hours are 6:30 am until 10:30 pm year-round.
