The cache is hidden a short way from a location where you can park a car. Geocachers are encouraged to participate in a longer walk once they find the cache and pick up a map of the path of the original walk.
This geocache was created as an event in conjunction with the “Imaginary Places” thematic residency at the Banff Centre. The cache was created as part of a 5 km public participation "guided" walk addressing history of the area intermingled with stories of fictional persons and events. The cache consists of the fragments of stories told, along with Polaroid photos referencing the various points of interest along the path of the walk.
This is a thematic cache and geocachers are encouraged to exchange "treasures" pertaining to history, walking, and/or environmental issues. The cache is in a brown rubbermaid container.
The following items were part of the cache when it was placed:
- log book in baggie
- 3 pencils and 1 pen
- disposable camera in baggie so geocachers can take a picture of themselves with the cache (return the camera to the cache)
- 12 "Ministry of Walking" buttons
- info brochures about the walk (with map)
- 12 packets of history (in baggies): story fragment and Polaroid from each point of interest along the way created during the original walk.
