Geocache Description:

To get credit for this find your photo must be added to your log. Please do not send me your photo, I cannot manage who qualified by saving your photo.

Cloud Gate:
Is lovingly known as the Bean in Chicago and is one of the main attractions at Millennium Park. It's a monumental public sculpture by Anish Kapoor which weighs in at 110 tons. Named Cloud Gate by the artist, it's a stainless steel sculpture designed to reflect the Chicago skyline, the new park and everything around it.

The sculpture has been unveiled but is still being buffed out. Currently the seams are visible but when finished it will be a seamless reflection of the Chicago Skyline and anyone standing nearby.

To get credit for this cache:
You must take a photograph of Cloud Gate (aka the Bean) with your reflection in the picture. Your face must be clear enough to identify that it is you. Attach the photo to your online found it log. Just make sure it's a reflection of you off the mirrored surface of Cloud Gate and oddly enough if it's your backside in the reflection and you are in the foreground that does meet the requirements.
