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

BCP517 - Carbon

We decided to do a little road trip to pick up a few caches today and the opportunity for a stop in Carbon was part of the plan. We parked at the south end of the townsite and enjoyed two crossings of the local stream before arriving at the cap site near the NW end of the local campground. The cap site was well marked with a piece of lath and blue flagging, but the cap itself was covered with hard packed ice. We took a stroll over to a nearby fire pit and borrowed a sizeable log to help chip out the ice on top of the cap. After a few minutes of work, we uncovered the familiar shape of an Alberta Survey cap. It was a most pleasant morning for the short hike, as we snapped the money shot, took a few pictures of the surrounding area, and headed NE to further adventure along the backroads. Thanks OFTH for this nicely located cap - now if we had a few more mountain caps and a little warm weather things would be terrific!

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.
