Geocache Description:

Located in a medium-sized City of Inver Grove Heights park, that is complete with a plastic play area for kids, basketball and tennis courts, and some wooded trails. Not too far from Highway 3, Highway 52 (which, by the way, Garmin Mapsource has labelled backwards), and Interstate 494. There is also a historic church nearby, as well as a lake teeming with wildlife. The park closes nightly at 10:00pm.

Since almost everyone associates the same thing with the place-name of Salem, we decided to make this kind of a mystery cache--all of our initial trade items are wrapped, with simple clues telling what the contents are--rest assured, everything is harmless. Feel free to trade whatever you like, wrapped or unwrapped.

5/7/03--I just updated the coordinates, by changing the .023 to .013 in the Latitude--my GPS has been right on whenever I've checked this cache, so I thought it was everyone else, since the coords posted in the logs vary quite a bit, but since I copied the coordinates from my GPS to the cache page by hand, I might've mistyped them. Sorry about that, and I hope you all enjoyed the extra challenge. (I just updated the software in my GPS and lost all the waypoints I had stored, so I don't know if my coordinates matched).

Please note: Park officials do read the cache logs, so please be sure to stay on the trail to get as close to the cache as possible, etc. Also note anything positive you do in the area i.e. cached and trashed, and note how you enjoyed the park. Thank You.
