Geocache Description:

This is a nice short hike in a Park in Des Moines. The terrain is pretty easy until "Decision Time". Park at N 41°34.563' - W093°40.984'

My first placed cache! Joining me on this beautiful fall afternoon was my family visiting from out of town. It was a great day. Erika, Erinn, Jen, Pete, and the dogs (Fallie and Winston) and I went on a nice hike looking for the perfect spot for our first cache. This is a nice short hike in a Park in Des Moines. The terrain is pretty easy until "Decision Time". Park at N 41°34.563' - W093°40.984' Follow the Bill Riley Trail south. There are a lot of animals on the way. Long pants are probably good, and I would be very careful for animals at night. The container is a medium sized green ammo box, placed on the ground. The coordinates were taken with an eTrex Vista. The contents are: Updated Items 7/23/2003: There is so much new stuff in this cache!! It is PACKED full of stuff!! I updated the coordinates because of all of the comments about the coordinates being off. I will leave the old coordinates in the notes just in case they are useful. The old coordinates are "N 41 34.091 by W 093 40.795".

  • Floating AwayWell, we have had some flooding here in Des Moines. For those who have been on the cache before, this bridge usually has about 15feet between it and the water, and as of today, about 2 feet!! I think the cache is probably in the Gulf by now!!!
