Geocache Description:

Cache is a magnetic key container.

This cache is one of a series called "The trail of the serpent" based loosely on a book of the same title written in 1973 by Robert E. Gard and Elaine Reetz. All of these caches will be located along the Fox river from it's source south of Kingston to the mouth of the Fox River in Green Bay. As the infant Fox runs northeast from the Portage, it glides and twists through fertile meadows, broadens into small lakes until it finds itself in the broad sweep of Lake Winnebago. Lake Winnebago acts as the dam for the lower Fox which continues on to Green Bay in a wide flood, tumbling over chutes now made into dams, becoming one big scene of power development for the growth of its towns. "For us," said a famous Indian, "This river was a path. For our white brethren, to whom we sold it, it is a power." Loise Phelps Kellogg When the water is high you can still see the power of the DePere Rapids from this point. They were the first obstacle that upstream explorers faced when leaving Green Bay.

NOTICE: We are looking for a new owner for this cache. If you are interested in being the owner of part of "The Trail of the Serpent" send Sloughfoot a message.
