Write note Ringrat posted a note for Brass Cap Cache - A Memorial Puzzle

Tuesday, February 6, 2018Alberta, Canada

BCP760 - Prairie Bluff [FOUND]

Today was a cold day for a walk, but with sun scheduled to appear it seemed like a good day for a view. The road wasn't freshly plowed so I made my way crosss-country on the clockwise summer route, which wasn't a gret decision, as the snow cover wasn't heavy enough to make crossing the steep scree a quick endeavour, but it was enough to obscure the trail and make thinks slippery. Once back on the road I made quick progress up the ridge and into the freezing wind. The view from the summit was wonderful, though looking at it required staring into the wind so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I'd have liked. After finding the cache up here, I looked for the cap for a couple of minutes before spotting it, nicely uncovered by the wind. Then it was a quick jog down the ridge to get out of the breeze and then a slog down the road back to my car. Thanks for a great cap up here!

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
