bullmoose_rocks: With sadness, I'm archiving this one. The cache is gone. The trees at the hide location were pretty beaten up after the September snowfall and it is tough to hide there again as a result.

Thank you everyone who found this one and loved the puzzle as much as I loved creating it. I think in all the puzzles I created, this easily is my favourite.

For those who are returning to this one to try to solve it anyway, it helps to print a copy of the image. Fold it on the black triangles like a MAD magazine fold-in page and the coordinates will reveal themselves. The outer ones reveal the latitude, the inner ones the longitude. You may need a mirror to read them well.

If you did find the same hieroglyphs decoder I used, you'd see the message IGNORE XTRA LETTERS. Also, if you folded it in on the solve hieroglyphs, you may have also spotted the hint: IN A TREE. The Calgary imagery and other Egyptian symbols were simply space filler.

The posted coordinates for the cache were the Fish Creek Library - which is pyramid shaped.

Originally there was a part 2 to the cache. Perhaps someday I'll resurrect the second part as a puzzle onto itself.
