Geocache Description:

A mystery cache that could have been a webcam cache


The bridges of Rovaniemi are among the most notable landmarks of the city. The given coordinates lead you to a place, where you can position yourself in front of two bridges of Rovaniemi and have a webcam photo taken of you. However, to find out the coordinates of the actual cache, you need to study the history and facts about the two Rovaniemi bridges in the “Sillat” webcam. 

The "Sillat - Bridges" webcam image can be found at:

http://www.rovaniemi.fi/Kansainvalinen-sivusto/English/Webcam

Still image from the webcam is also attached below.

And then, where is the cache?

To conclude the latitude of the final coordinates, you need to know the day when the bridge in the background was opened for traffic for the first time. To conclude the longitude, you may find help knowing the year when the railway bridge in the foreground was destroyed by the Germans, and also the altitude (above sea level, with the first decimal) of the Kemijoki river beneath the bridges.

The coordinates you should receive may lead you a couple of steps away from the cache, but once you get to the place, the cache is quite easy to locate.

Note, that this is NOT a webcam cache, and you must log this by solving the puzzle and visiting and logging the cache at the final coordinates! At the final coordinates you will be introduced yet to another view of Rovaniemi city.
