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

Tuesday, July 22, 2014Alberta, Canada

BCP024 Red Deer

As Coolcat21 said in his log for this cap, context shots are very helpful and we are grateful for them and previous logs regularly. And for the Summary of Finds that makes them so easy to access! From previous logs we knew the coords were horrible so we wrote down several alternates just in case, but it was Coolcat21's excellent context shot that enabled us to find this without any satellite involvement. The GPSr was only there for the photo shoot. Note the distance to destination.

The slight depression filled with sand was easily spotted and dusted off. Despite the beaten condition of this cap, the numbers are readable and a bit of water on the cap really made them pop out. For Sharks, many things go better with a bit of water.

With that taken care of, it was off to cut across City Hall Park just across the street on our way to run an errand before finding the next cap for the evening. The Park is looking very nice this time of year.

Thanks for a cap to work into our evening walk!

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.
