Geocache Description:


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Prepare yourself for a short three stage adventure along the Cedar River. The final stage is a rubbermaid container. Keep an eye out for the cool looking black-and-yellow argiope in the area (see picture).

Heed of caution - Some stages get close to the river, but you do not need to do anything acrobatic and DO NOT ENTER the water. It's all easy hiking. Please watch your footing.

Roller dams create some of the most dangerous undercurrents produced and pose an extreme drowning hazard. Anyone (or anything) that goes over the top of the dam will be pulled under by strong currents, barreled into a wall that prevents river bed erosion, caught (spun) in its rolling action, and may not be ejected from the cycle for days or possibly weeks.

Because of the hazards, dam opponents have called for the removal of roller dams and some similar dams have already been removed from other places in the United States.

Hunt this cache at your own risk. Night caching is not recommended.
