Found it van der Decken found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, 26 July 2009Alberta, Canada

N 53° 24.222 W 117° 32.982

BCP384 - Hinton - Bradwell
Elev. 1046 metres

It was late afternoon by the time I finally made it to Hinton. A long drive made longer by a stop mid way for a lengthy phone call to a loved one. With only a couple of hours in hand, urban and near-urban caps were the order of the day.

Muggles were no problem on this hot, sunny day. I parked at the end of the nearby street and made the short walk to ground zero. The area around ground zero looks a lot different than the photos of the area taken in winter. The winter shots make the area look a lot more open than it does in summer. 10 capping karma points for PDOP's standing the guard post back up, and another 10 for whoever added the generous amount of flagging on the post! The slightly below ground level cap was right beside the path and, still exposed from the recent find, only required a little bit of debris removal. It's in very good condition and all the digits are clear and legible. Thanks for the almost drive-up cap that still managed to feel a bit remote!

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
