Getting to GZ can be a little tricky. I parked about 225 metres north of GZ in the lot in front of the school. Made my way around the west side of the school, then found a path that took me between the cliff and the school's south fence. The path goes close to the cliff at times, so use caution. There also are three telephone wires on the ground as you approach GZ.

I arrived at GZ, searched, and searched some more. No guard posts. No holes in the ground. No hints. I was about to give up when my toe felt a small dent in the ground. Could it be? Yes, it was! The cap is pretty much flush with the ground amid some juniper ground cover. A quick wipe with an old sock, and the cap was ready to be photographed. It has been scratched up, but all the numbers were readable. It's in line with the telephone poles and about 4 metres north of the east side of a large square that has eroded from the cliff. Good luck. Thanks for this challenging cap.

Brass cap in context
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
