Found it BVPete found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Monday, 12 March 2012Alberta, Canada

BCP528 Picture Butte
N49° 52.886’ W112° 47.308’

After Warner we drove NW on Hwy 4 to Hwy 845 then north through Coaldale to Hwy 519 where we turned west and headed to Picture Butte. That was a nice drive, especially north of Coaldale where the road crossed the Oldman River, a crossing we haven’t used before. In Picture Butte we navigated to spot in a back lane that had us within 50 meters of the cap. Now I actually had to use the compass to locate the cap as it was buried under an inch or so of loose dirt. I mean it was still easy, but I like using the compass occasionally. I have often wondered what makes Survey Control Markers so interesting, I think it is something to do with the way they tie things together, sort of pins them down or in other words, brings a little order to the chaos and I like that.

Thanks for posting all these survey markers ofth, we had a wonderful day!

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
