Comments:
Did I mention that this is an easy to find cache? When you get within 20' it should be pretty obvious where someone would hide something. If you still need a hint, visit my website at www.creekbed.com/geocache .

I first became familiar with Alvarado Creek 15 years ago when I was assigned to provide irrigation along its banks. Yes, believe it or not, this mess of reeds and weeds was actually planted and watered at one time. The Army Corp of Engineers and various other agencies required that the banks on this section of Alvarado Creek be restored to its native habitat. Temporary irrigation was placed to give the native plantings a head start. Consultants were brought in and biologists were hired to monitor the progress.

While this isn't the most beautiful spot in San Diego, it is none the less, considered a native habitat. Soon the San Diego Trolley will be constructed along this stream bed so expect some changes over the next two years.

Hit this cache around 8:40 and after failing to find it the first time in the dark went back to my truck got a flashlight and found it easily. The location was convenient because I got a chance to check out the campus some more as well as the psych building (I'm currently searching for a clinical psych Ph.D. program). Took a creekbed pocket knife (it will end up in my "what a long strange trip it's been" cache I'll place when I finally get back home) and a cache card, left a music CD as well as two travel bugs. They've accompanied me for some time, and have similiar goals (though I picked them up at different places) they want to be international travellers. So I figure this was a good place to drop them off, either they can make a run for the border or head to the San Diego or LA airports and cross the sea.
