It's about .3mi to the cache. Thirteen years ago, this location was under water. This was Beanblossom Lake in Morgan Monroe State forest until 1993, when a huge storm system dropped more than 6 inches of rain in a few days, the man-made levee collapsed and the lake drained into Greasy Creek. Beanblossom Lake was left dry, and now it's interesting to see what 13 years of God's own restoration project has done to reclaim what man had dammed and drowned.
On the way in, you will pass through a large closed parking area and visit the decaying remains of the shelter house, playground, pcinic areas and BBQ pits. As you stand under the young sycamores and sign the cache log, that pretty meadow you see opening up before you was the lake bed. Now it's so thick with opportunistic scrub, wild flowers and tangled briars that this was all the farther I could go without making the casual cacher hate me in the green seasons.
Shorts are strongly discouraged: As stated, the briars are thick and mean in this beautiful place.
You are seeking an ammo can (Thanks Rinkey and Jim Honey. This is the ammo can you gave me for my birthday. I was saving it for this cache.)
