Geocache Description:

Smile for the camera. Post the captured picture and you can score a log in Ottawa.

I have been wanting to do this in Ottawa for a while. What you will need are a BIG Canadian Flag like the ones on flag poles, a cell phone and a partner ready to capture the web cam picture of you waving the flag. I think there is enough resolution in the parliment hill cam to do this if you stand just behind the eternal flame and someone squints at the picture to make out the flag. It is just a great reason to visit the hill. For reference the URL of the web cam is:
(visit link)

So get someone to be ready to grab the pic off the web, head downtown with your flag and give them a call. As this activity takes two to perform, both of you can log a find.

The powers that be only allow a single cam reference so traffic cams and others are no longer permitted.
