Length is approximately 4.4 miles within the City; total length is about 23.7 miles. Surface is asphalt and width is approximately 6'-8' wide.

This idea came from Iowa Tom which we both share a passion for photography. I come down to this area often in the winter months shooting pictures of the bald eagles. However, this winter 2010 has been a very bad year for the bald eagles in our area and I haven't been seeing as many.

This is a great cache to bring your dog and enjoy the outdoors. Optimal months to do this cache is September through April. This cache is rated based upon the following:

Difficulty: The time it takes to complete the Pictocache.

Terrain: The distance traveled to complete the Pictocache, no climbing required.

If you enjoyed this cache...please place a favorite point on the page...thanks

Update 1/15/17...brand new set of pictures and sequence.
