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

Tuesday, 14 October 2014Alberta, Canada

BCP381 R.A.M -(Royal Alberta Museum)

The Black Sharks were doing a little aquatic caching along the North Saskatchewan River today and enjoying the beautiful weather. Of course, there were a lot of people out enjoying the day, too, and when we arrived at the next cache we could see that two people were literally right on top of it.

Fortunately, we knew there were a couple of caps nearby--one of them just uphill from the cache. So two Sharks walked out of the river and up the hill. Of course, we had our human disguises on so there was no panic in the park. It might have looked a bit odd to see two fully equipped dry cachers walk out of the water, especially at this time of the year, but we picked our moment to emerge and the disguises are very convincing, so no one paid undue attention.

No sooner had we taken stock of the cap's general location then the muggles moved away from the cache location. Mrs Shark went to take advantage of that before another muggle or several took their place. Before she was out of easy earshot she heard Mr Shark say he'd found the cap! That was quick considering the location and leaf cover! We left a piece of yellow flagging tape to mark the spot. Thanks for the cap so handily placed and with a nice view of the river valley!

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
