Geocache Description:

This windy spot hosts radio control gliders, paragliding and a webcam!

The easiest way to log this cache is with the help of a partner. You'll need a cell phone, and a friend at home with a computer and internet access. Stand at the cache site, look toward camera, and call your friend at their computer. Have your friend save your picture onto their hard drive and then email it to you so you can post it here along with your log.

Note (8/10/2007) - Now that I've fixed the link to the camera, from this day forward you MUST post a webcam photo to get credit for this cache. No cellphone or digital camera photos. If you do not comply, your log will be deleted. Thanks for understanding.

Check out the picture above beforehand so it does not take too long to get it right. In the picture, Don was standing on the trail by a small bush. Look for the camera in the window and try to position yourself in front of it. The camera reloads only every 10-12 minutes -- that's why it is rated at 2 difficulty. It's often cold and always windy here so you'll want to get this done quickly. Also, late in the afternoon the sun will wash out the picture in this west-facing camera.

After you get your picture taken, check out the hang gliders, radio control planes and the beach.
