The northern summit of Henry Hill has been changed by a gravel mining operation, so the southern closed contour is now the high point. Here are some notes from a local geocacher:

"I survey a bit with my work with C.T.Male Associates, P.C. in Latham, NY and geocache for recreation. Geocaching has taken me to the highest point in Albany County, which is called Henry Hill. I visited the actual (apparent) highest point and found it to be different than the point listed on the site.

The Henry Hill listed has been mined over time as a gravel pit and has been radically altered and lowered. I did some research and found info on the "apparent" new high point, which I visited in the field and recorded a waypoint for. It is an indistinct high point in the pine and hardwood summit of a hilltop found about 0.30 miles SE along an azimuth of 145° True from the Henry Hill listed.

This is the Lat/Lon I recorded using my Garmin Map60Cx, WAAS differentially corrected, and using an external antenna for the best results. I averaged the position over a 20 minute period. The elevation is not considered very accurate but should be +/- 20'. The point I took is my guess at the highest point on the hilltop which is tree covered with no views and is gently sloped in all directions. There is no distinct summit, and it is rather unremarkable I must say."

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
