BCP648 Hard Luck Falls

This cap will be remembered for the early start to the day, the long drive to get here, a frosty but not cold morning, and a walk through an area that few people would ever set foot on, especially for the purpose of a short hike through the woods. There was none of the snow that had fallen overnight in the south of the province, but conditions had been ideal to form a coat of hoar frost on everything making for some picturesque scenery here, as well as much of the drive north. Getting to the cap site required some careful navigation in many spots, this really is a boggy area with quite a bit of open water - would not want to come here in the springtime as the name might become even more appropriate.

A highlight of the walk over to the cap had to be the owl that unexpectedly flew from his tree perch and proceeded to crisscross the route we were following landing after each short slight across the opening.
I believe it was a Northern Hawk Owl.

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
