BCP685 - Little Beehive

With the back country trails needing a day or two to dry out, I decided to try a couple of caches that were along more heavily used trails. I had forgotten about the cap on Little Beehive near Lake Louise until I reviewed the caps that I still need to visit. So knowing a little history about the Lake Louise scene I headed out early to get a parking spot east of the Chateau Lake Louise. Thankfully the early start paid off!

I made it to the trail head just after day break and up to the cap site which this morning was above the clouds and a bright blue sky. The valley was totally in fog / cloud and the surrounding peaks were crisp in the morning sun. I quickly found the cap on the east side of the old lookout, collected the necessary details and snapped numerous pictures of the unique view this morning. Simply a fine spot for a cap - thanks OFTH for setting it up!

Overall the round trip distance was 11.4 km with a moderate amount of elevation thrown in. On the way down I encountered well over 200 people heading up to the Tea House and other destinations - one of the busiest trails I have seen anywhere. BTW, there's even equestrian traffic that heads to the Little Beehive Summit!

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
