BCP737 High Rockies Trail
Mrs BVPete and I were taking a few novice hikers on a hike to Chester Lake today. After we had completed that venture which was highly enjoyed by all parties involved, Mrs BVPete and I decided to return home via Canmore. This route, of course passed right below the referenced cap and also of course, we stopped to locate said cap. I made the trip up the steep loose bank to a marker post I spotted from the road while Mrs BVPete waited in the car. I had made the assumption that this was the survey control point I wanted, however it was a good thing I checked my GPSr as it was not the right one! The right one was about 20 m south, also by the High Rockies Trail. So, I picked up my camera etc and moved to the correct marker and once more took a few photos of the MP and Iron stake before returning to the car. At that time I realized that I had left my GPSr beside the survey stake, rats! So, it was back up that very steep hill once more to retrieve the GPS device. Then it was onward to Canmore and home to Cochrane.
Thanks for posting this survey control point ofth, there are some wonderful views from this spot beside the newly constructed High Rockies Trail.
