Geocache Description:

There's a short walk from a parking area.  You're looking for a small geocaching box.  Includes log, pencil, and swag.  Placed with permission from the Director of Parks and Rec.  Thanks, Mark!


This cache is located in McKinley Park by the veteran's and military display.  We had a Memorial Day service here with the Legion and DAR ladies while a light rain fell on us.  There was a table setting for one set up in honor of soldiers that never made it home to have a meal with family ever again.  A single red rose was in a vase in the middle of the table.  The rain caused the red dye in the rose to drip and it looked like there were blood drops on the the table cloth.  It was the most moving service I had seen in a while.

I love this area and hope you do too.
