This is not a difficult hobby...or so I thought.

The previous four posts is why I wish this part of Geocaching required some sort of IQ test. There is no stack here. You did not see a stack, unless you are on some sort of substance. You did not find this BM. This is also why I have a long essay regarding photographic proof of the find.

No Stacks here. When I got to the GZ I was standing very close to a set of monitoring wells. There were 6 total. 3 that were about 6 to 8 feet apart in a line running east and west and another 3 that were about 20 feet south that were running parallel with the first. At first I thought that this might have been the target until I referenced the data sheet.

Saw it with my Dad and the Scouts.

Saw this on a visit to Salt Lake this week.

I would have to agree with the others. I took this photo from S. Temple looking north nearby the intersection with 200 W.

UP&L gave up the coal plant years ago, not sure if this is NG powered or not. Same building area, does that count for anything?

As indicated by other cachers--this stack is no longer present.

This one no longer exists.

The coordinates and description lead you to the east of a non-descript building to the west of the LDS Temple.

It looks like UP&L has changed over from coal to natural gas for this plant and have removed the stacks.
