BCP355 - Octopus Lake
I drove near this one on another trip to the area and after finding the access road, there were a couple of trains in the way. We came prepared this time and after arriving to find no trains int he way, we loaded up with our metal detector, axe, hatchet, two shovels, and a pick. Oh, we also brought our GPS! Surprisingly, we didn't need the GPS as the location was marked with three stakes. Unfortunately, it was under a lot of snow and ice. After removing the snow, I started out with the hatchet and pick, but had to switch to the axe for the longer handle as the hole got deeper! AFter about a foot of ice, I broke through and then there was the water! We could not actually see it, but used a long screwdriver to touch it and verify that we found circular metal object. Thanks for this interesting cap!
