Geocache Description:

The Cache is not at the above coordinates, but it is one of our favorite dining locations. The Cache is 3" x 1" Dia Camouflaged Micro. FTF will have trouble getting the log out of the cache due to a plastized FTF card wrapped inside the Log Book. We suggest a 4" piece of wire with a 3/16" “L” hook on the bottom to pull it out. Please bring your own writing instrument.


The Cache is actually hidden not far from the homestead of Albert Warren Bragg and John Thomas Bragg. Their homestead, on which they lived in 1894, was on the east side of Bragg Creek (named after them), basically across the creek from the present day Saddle and Sirloin Ranch. Albert was 17 at the time and John was 12 at the time, and they had run away from home in Oxford Junction, Nova Scotia after a disagreement with their new step-mother. They did not stay very long as they became homesick. They eventually returned to Alberta and Albert ranched at Rosebud and John at Rockyford.

The Mrs Bragg in our hunt, was John’s wife and never actually lived in Bragg Creek, however we think the black and white patterned sheets she has hung on the lines in the picture below are a message telling us where our MrsB hid the Micro. You will need to decipher her message in order to find it.
