Geocache Description:

MAINTANCE COMPLETE. Re-did this one a bit to try and keep it dry. Container is larger then a micro, but smaller then a 35MM film container, It only holds a log- so bring your own pen/pencil. If you park in the East lot- look for the Blue-Eyed Guardian of the Park, the kids will love it. Extreme stealth will be required during the peak of the summer.

The area behind the Del Otoero Hotel, the other side of the tracks was, from what I understand used as a dumpsite for the Hotel and others in the area. Consequently a lot of food and food by-products were tossed here. This proverbial feast of culinary cast always was a great draw for the wild life, probably the most obvious were skunks. That’s the explanation I was given anyway for the name given to this area as “Skunk Hollow:”

Businesses came and went in this area over the years and decades but it always seemed to be a place for bars and rowdy patrons. Bar names I recall where the Down Beat and Lake View (?) and I don’t recall the others. A couple of these bars had live music and were quite the “notorious” place to hang out. In the late 60’s, rumor was that the one of the bars had topless waitress’s. Yup-right here in river city ! Of course I’m not sure how much of the stories were true and how much was what would be considered an Urban Myth. Much like the legend of "The Witch of Skunk Hollow". –But that’s another story!
