Geocache Description:

A cache inspired by a series of caches in Sacramento

We were eating dinner the other day and as the light of the day faded, we noticed this point of light. We're not sure what this structure is for other than to light up the night sky. If you come at night, you will get a to see this structure lit up, but the cache may be a bit more difficult to locate. It is a busy area, so beware of the watchful eyes of muggles as you search. The cache is a sign only micro so bring your own pen. Please replace the cache as you found it.

Note: You don't need to rummage through anything, or even touch anything (besides the cache). When hunting, STAY ON THE SIDEWALK and act like you are interested in this interesting tower. There's no need to act suspicious. The cache has been moved from it's original location so that it can be reached from the sidewalk (although some people's feet may leave the ground to do so). The coordinates have been updated.

Note: 5/24/04 - There is no need to dismantle anything to retrieve the cache.

Note: 10/7/04 - The stress about being on the sideway is to keep you from looking from the parking lot. And I can retrieve and replace the cache with my feet on the sidewalk. ;)

Thanks to Green Gables for the link to the article about the Tower of Mystery. I was wondering about this tower, and apparently so is everybody else.
