Geocache Description:

NOTE: The title of this cache was inadvertently printed upside down.
In order to read the title, you will have to stand on your head.

NOTE: The listed coordinates are not the position of the cache
(but they do represent a really good place to park).
You must solve the position of the cache from the description below.

Ambigrams are words, phrases, or numbers which are written in such a way that they can be read in more than one direction.

Take a look at the word "dollop," for instance. If you rotate that word 180°, it reads the same as it did before!

Now "dollop" is a rare word. Most of the time it requires some creativity (on the part of the viewer and the creator) in order to read an ambigram. Check out what Keith did, for example:

Ambigrams that require rotation are not the only kind. For example, if you use a mirror to read the word "TOOTH" written vertically in all capital letters as shown, it reads the same. Take a look at this example of a mirror ambigram in which the message in reflection is quite different from the original!

Here is a webpage that illustrates a variety of different kinds.

Rocky's favorite ambigram artist is Scott Kim. Kim's book Inversions is the finest work on the subject. Check out Scott Kim's really cool gallery.
