Geocache Description:

This was the first stash hidden in the St. Louis area. Hidden on Jan. 1, 2001. Amazing how fast this sport has taken off. We hid this on New Years day 2001 and did it in the snow! Emmenagger nature trail (don't quote us on the spelling),
St. Louis, MO.
overall=2, terrain=3

Due to plundering of the original stash, we made this into a two part cache. The first cache is typical but there are also coordinates, in the cache (in the log book and a printed copy in a zip lock), to find the virtual cache site. You don't want to miss the view so make sure to find the virtual site as well. I will also post those coordinates (partially in text so you can't read unless you cheat) in the hint section.
