BCP504 Peter Fidler Cap
N53° 54.465’ W110° 53.800’
Mrs BVPete, my Mother and I had spent the night with my Brother and his wife on a piece of land they own on Sunset Lake about 30 kms from Elk Point. So “we” and “they” drove to Elk Point to find the Peter Fidler Cap today. Man that cap was sure in a deep hole, must have been fun to find the first time. For me it was just a quick clean out and photo before going for lunch at a nearby fantastic hamburger place. Thanks for the cap beside the giant early surveyor statue ofth, terrific spot.
After lunch we went to visit a nearby historic site where two early forts had been built in the 1790’s almost side by side. Buckingham House (HB Company) and Fort George (NW Company). This is a very interesting spot and well worth the visit.
