How Geocaching Works

This land and the cache was being protected by a watchful guardian. Unfortunately, the guardian on the bluff had been stolen and will not be replaced. (See my log post on 9/17/2013 for a description of the guardian.) This still remains a nice place for a cache though.
Local children had named the guardian on the hill "Potosa". Historically, Potosa was daughter of Meskwaki Indian chief Peosta and later became the wife of Julien Dubuque, founder of nearby Dubuque. Do you feel her spirit in this place?
The cache is a regular sized container starting with nice swag and a pencil and logbook. Please trade fairly, sign the logbook, and return the cache as you found it to keep it a fun find for future cachers.
If you want to know more about Potosa’s husband, you might want to read the description on this cache: “Shadow of the Founder”
