Found it brendan714 found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Friday, 31 March 2017Alberta, Canada

BCP756 Surveyors Ridge
N 50° 41.613 W 114° 44.785

Logging a few 'found its' on brass caps I've found previously before I won't be able to do so (see attached announcement).

This cap is in a fantastic location, appropriately known as Surveyor's Ridge. When I first reached the ridge I kind of expected to see some sort of survey marker - and of course there was one! The views in all directions are fantastic, so it's no surprise that this was a popular survey location!

This location was first surveyed by David A. Nichols in 1916 - exactly 100 years before this cap was posted to the brass cap page! Very cool.

I suggested to OFTH that this location would make a great addition to the brass cap page - and I think it certainly is a great addition! Thanks for adding this one OFTH!
I first found the cap on Nov 21, 2016. I was hoping to get back to the location at some point to 'officially' log the cap, but by the time I do that I will not be able to log my found it online - so I will log it today. Thanks!

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
