Lindsay's Folly (mentioned in my last post) turned out to be less impressive than I had hoped. These graffiti-covered walls are the only ones still standing, though there are sections of concrete foundation and chunks of masonry scattered over quite a large area. It was built by Calgary pioneer Dr. Neville Lindsay in the years before World War I. He sank $200,000 into it (about $4 million in today's dollars) before abandoning the project.

The main reason I went there today was to find a geocache I hadn't been able to find last weekend. It was a tricky one, rated 4.5 out of 5 stars for difficulty, with a message to decipher and multiple stages. I was quite pleased when I found it; the last time it was found was back in September.
