Know Future found carondolet jr. 

This park is a classic sinkhole, or karst, terrain. All the small ponds in round depressions are sinkholes that probably open up to caves at greater depths.

Sinkholes are common where the rock below the land surface is limestone (like this location), salt, or other rocks that can naturally be dissolved by moving ground water. As the rock dissolves, spaces and caverns develop underground. Sinkholes are dramatic because the land usually stays intact for a while until the underground spaces just get too big. If there is not enough support for the land above the spaces then a sudden collapse of the land surface can occur. These collapses can be small or they can be huge and can occur where a house or road is on top.

Carondolet Park was probably created here because the sinkholes are too numerous to allow much development. Sure makes a great park, though.

No problem finding this one. TNLNSL. Thanks for placing this one in a geologically interesting spot!

N 38° 33.635 W 090° 15.736

This flag flies in Carondolet Park, St. Louis, Missouri.

Know Future found It's 4PM; do you know where the pencils are? 

Got to the T-intersect at exactly 4:00 PM. Then I started walking back to exactly where I was at 2:00 PM (thanks GPS!). 124 meters later I was looking right at the cache. I'm not sure why this works, but it does. It sure helps to plan ahead. I brought a pencil, but it was too big, so TNLNSL. Well, not exactly. The logsheet is full, so I left a new slip of paper. It should be good for 20 more finds. Thanks for the fun cache.

Happy Birthday!1968--The Beatles' movie Magical Mystery Tour is broadcast by BBC2 in the UK, in color (it had been broadcast in black and white on December 26, 1967, by BBC1). The critical response remains almost wholly negative. Note that Paul is wearing a black carnation. Paul is dead?

Know Future found Some RR History 

Snagged this one before going to work this afternoon. Good day for caching - cold, kind of rainy and nobody around. I always enjoy walking this trail. Thanks!

Know Future found Just an ammo box in the woods 

Spent about two hours on this one. For some reason I was expecting something entirely different. TNLNSL. Log book will hold about two more finds.

Know Future found Hobo Camp 

This one is different. To me it looks more like a random collection of flotsam (or is it Jetsons?) than a secret campsite. I see no reason to remove it.
It raises an interesting question -- should a solo geocacher (like myself) take precautions when entering a secluded thicket like this? If so, what? I rarely give it a thought, though perhaps I should.


Today there was a dozer pushing dirt on the north side of Big Bend. It looks like the trail is being extended(?) Makes me wonder if the construction will eventually extend south, perhaps hindering access to this cache.
