BCP198 - Outpost Lake

Well I hadn't realized that the coordinates for BCP198 were on the Colorado. In fact I didn't even know the cap had been archived.

Oh well, this one was a bit of an adventure. I checked out all of the potential access points and quickly ruled out the no trespassing gates. However, I found a gate with a no hunting sign - this must be the road allowance into the survey point. Before proceeding I stopped to ask a nearby resident and he confirmed that the gated entrance with the no hunting sign was indeed the road allowance and described the route taken by the road.

I was able to drive to within 250 metres of the survey point before walking up with the usual cap gear. I quickly discovered one of the Colorado's benefits - it had the full description of the hint for the survey point. The hint identified three prominent points approximately 30 metres from GZ (rocks / boulders) with arrows etched into them pointing to the main control point. After doing a thorough search of GZ, I couldn't find a cap. After reading the hint again I discovered that there was no cap at this site, only a centre point etched into a primary rock at GZ. Yes - I found the CP. GZ definitely offers the best view of Outpost Lake and the surrounding mountains in the area. TFTH and I better check the caps that have been archived.

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.
