“Should we call it off?” My friend Amy and I stood in the middle of a field full of nettles and thistles in the Delta, global positioning system devices in hand. Through some creative leaping and contortionism, we’d managed to find a relatively pain-free path this far, but we had about another 40 feet to go until we reached our target, and we had to wade through the knee-high thistles to get there.

We later found out that for most of the year, this particular cache, “The World’s 6th Tallest Structure,” was in a pleasant field that was quite easy to walk through without any trouble. Apparently, we’d timed our attempt for the short span from late August to mid-September when nature fought back against intruders.
