Description   EN   

While driving through Ballantyne Corporate Park this afternoon I discovered a sculpture that I had never seen before.

The Apple and the Clamp, a sculpture by Peter Woytuk, was dedicated in April 2007. To claim credit for this cache, please post a picture of yourself with the sculpture. Also, there is a plaque onsite with the names of the people that the roundabout was dedicated to. You will need to collect the Last Name from this plaque to log the cache (the Log Password).

1 31 August 2014 sfcchaz Found it

DudleyGrunt and I came down to North Carolina to seek some OCNA caches. They are many, many OCNA caches in the Charlotte area and we wanted to seek them during the current contest going on the OCNA site.

Today I found 45 OCNA cahes, 5 Groundspeak caches, 1 GPSgames.org cache , 1 Opencaching.com cache and several possible Terracaching.com locationless caches.

Nice piece of art, Thanks for showing it to us. TFTC

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).

We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.

Interesting artwork with the raven, in particular.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
