Found it Neko&Hiiri found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Tuesday, 27 February 2007Alberta, Canada

BCP063 - Calgary Tower.

Wow. My first terrain 8.5.....

Let me start out by saying that yes, I am afraid of heights. I don't like going into the tower at the best of times, but lemme tell you, trying to see the cap was an all-consuming deal for me.

"Why not go to the Calgary Tower today?" Neko asks. I think "sure, there's a cap there that we can get," and agree.

I carefully pack my camera bag with the essential lenses, etc. that would be required to take pictures through walls in order to use my 200mm zoom lens to get a photo of the cap. (I also packed some normal lenses, just to ensure that I could get some normal photos, too.)

When we got up to the top, I was greeted by an unwelcome sight about which I had forgotten: the glass floor.

Did I mention that I was afraid of heights?

So, after taking a look down to see how far it is (see attached photo) and after the cat walked out onto the glass floor (see attached photo), I whipped out my x-ray lens to take a photo of the cap through the roof of the Tower. (see attached photo.)

What I did NOT anticipate was that my xray technique would work QUITE so well. Although I can make out the numbers on the original photo (which I will forthwith email to the cache owner), alas, when it uploads, well, you can see what happened.

Thanks for the physics lesson, OFTH! I'm happy to finally log this one!

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
