Well what more can I say... a fantastic hike with BVPete and van der Decken on a superb day to a beautiful spot. As BVPete said the only route finding difficulty occurred about 5 minutes from parking when we did the logical thing and followed the main exploration road directly up the hill. What we neglected, missed or just plain ignored was the prominent route marker telling us to turn left as well as bearberry's comments about others making the same mistake we had just done. We had fun with BVPete, accusing him of leading us astray , but in reality he and I were too engrossed in conversation to notice OUR error. BVPete has found routes for me enough that I'd trust his instincts any day. The lower part of the hike was a bit boggy with long wet grass that only vdD had prepared for with gaitors. Once the ascent started, the views kept improving with every step. The ridge walk was wonderful and the ground was covered with wildflowers as far as you could see. The rocky section was pretty easy with two of the trickier parts avoidable to the left. I don't think vdD "aka - the mountain goat" (to go along with munitions disposal expert and rocket scientist)even noticed there was a rocky section. We did the traditional photo stop at the cap, found a lonely cache and then returned in the direction we came, albeit on a slightly lower track to the east. This was a memorable one OFTH. Thanks for another fine cap and thanks to BVPete and vdD for the companionship.

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.
