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

Wednesday, 13 January 2010Alberta, Canada

BCP459 Morley Boundary #3
N51° 03.598’ W114° 57.766’

Brutus and I came back to climb Sleepy Hollow’s Hill today in order that I could make my official find of BCP459. Of course , I had the added incentive of TiE’s new cache as well. I used a different ascent route to get to the cap which proved to be no better or worse than the original, just different. I took my cap photos, enjoyed the views and headed down by yet another further east route. Getting over to that descending ridge was difficult as the easy route, unfortunately lay entirely inside the Indian Reservation. I did get to check out some interesting cliffs along the top edge of my descent ridge and saw a number of not too fresh cougar tracks. We didn’t investigate the base of the cliffs as I wasn’t interested in discovering any occupied dens! The rest of the trip down was very enjoyable as this ridge was pretty well free of any major windfall.

The cap numbers are hidden by the last photo of Ripley, taken on Dec 17th at McLean Creek which turned out to be his last hike before old age took him from us on Dec 22nd.

Thanks for posting this interesting cap ofth. Brutus and I had a terrific time in hills today, although we both missed our little hiking buddy Ripley.

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.
