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

Thursday, 09 October 2008Alberta, Canada

BCP353 WLNP – N48° 59.919’ W113° 54.362’

Mrs BVPete and I were camping at Waterton over the Thanksgiving weekend (plus a few extra days) and decided to take the “rolling trail” along the Lake from the town to the US border. The trail turned out to be about 7 kms (one way) with a total elevation gain/loss of 310meters (when all the up’s and down’s are added together). It was a cold walk on this deserted trail today, but so very beautiful as only Waterton can be. Mrs BVPete, my Father and I set out on this hike almost 30 years ago but ran into a Grizzly Bear at Bertha Bay and had to turn back. We figured the bear had probably moved on by now, so it would be safe to complete the hike. I am also pretty sure my Father was with us, in spirit, as he passed away several years ago. When we got to the border we took a few photo’s and enjoyed a pleasant (but illegal, I am sure) picnic on the USA side of the line before heading back to the trailer. Thanks for selecting this border survey control point for your Brass Cap page ofth, we had a great day in the mountains.

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.
