I work right by Crosby (till our office moves to 35W & 494 at the end of the year), I'll do some checking and report back.

Anything along the banks trail will definitely flood out unless it is 4 or 5 feet up a tree. I've seen it flooded all the way up to Shepard Road. Just ask KB about flooding there. I'm sure he's an expert with flooded caches in this park.

Does that increase the rating of the caches?

I think KB has a good chance of getting a cache in every state along the Mississippi by the time this is over. That's going to be one heck of a challenge!

Yeah, the cache was right down by the edge of a river.
