When I Get A Round Tuit
In Iowa, United States
How Geocaching Works
I keep telling myself that someday I’ll put a cache here. Well, I finally got a round tuit.
I pass by here almost every day while making on my way back and forth between Coralville and Iowa City. Each time I say to myself that this place needs a cache. Well, here is. A nice quick little cache to find located along an abandoned section of the old North Dubuque Street bike trail.
Passing by this place brings back memories of a more relaxed time when the now busy road nearby crossed the Iowa River via an iron truss bridge that was just barely wide enough for two cars to pass.
The old iron Butler Bridge had stood for more than sixty years and aside from the gripping thrill one could get while traversing the bridge on its razor thin walkway during the winter, the old bridge felt like it was built to last at least another sixty years. Still, the idea was sold that a new bridge was needed. Now, hardly a quarter century later, the new Butler Bridge’s integrity is in question. Such a deal we got for our nickels.
Parking near to the cache may be a bit of a problem. You can park at the listed parking coordinates and enjoy a leisurely walk across the picturesque Iowa River. Have fun looking for the cache and be sure to replace it properly. While you’re at it, feel to post any snapshots that you may take of the nearby landmarks in the gallery.
