BVPete invited me to go on a hike to find J2D2s new cache up on Wind Ridge which would also allow me to find this cap that he had found back in August. We headed out in the morning and were greeted with blue skies and no wind at the parking area. The hike up was terrific with a mix of terrain with forested trails, alpine meadows, steep sections, a short scramble, a ridge walk and fantastic views. For a 4 hour return hike, this one ranks up there as one of my favourites. The views were superb in all directions. On the return we checked out a trail that skirted around the scramble section, but in my opinion, the scamble section was easier. It was a dirt trail that was steep in sections with lots of root exposure. However, if the short scramble stops you from reaching the top, I would suggest giving it a try. Just veer right when you hit the scramble section and follow the trail up. All in all, simply a great spot for a cap and a cache 2 for 1. Thanks to BVPete for the invite and the great conversation. It sure didnt't seem like 4 hours up there. Thanks for the cap OFTH.

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
