KRedEP: This one lived a good life. The beacon degraded so the cache ended up on the ground. Not a good thing for a flood plain. I'll open up this spot for someone else.

Geocache Description:

A beautiful Eden Prairie park in the Minnesota River Valley

This cache was placed in the winter when no one was around except for deer tracks. Just after we placed the container, we saw about a dozen deer run past. Foot paths lead very close to the cache. Please replace the container carefully.

Finding the trail head is a bit tricky especially in the winter. At the parking coordinates (N 44° 48.700 W 093° 25.336) there is an Eden Prairie park sign along with a "Private Drive" sign. Stay off the drive. There is a path between the drive and the pond that is the park trail. In the winter this is not plowed, but you should see plenty of footprints.

During many springs and even the fall of 2010 this cache was flooded. After flooding, the area has lots of standing water and mud. While some might enjoy this type of terrain, for those who don't we suggest finding this in the fall and winter.

The StarTribune recently had a front page article (visit link) about organizations getting people closer to the Mississippi River and appreciating it's value to us. In a smaller way these caches do the same thing for the Minnesota River. Let's appreciate the wilderness that's so close to home!
