N 49° 35.423 W 114° 22.579

BCP626 - Bellevue NW
Elev. 1321 metres

It was a beautiful day down south today. The sun was out and the temperature hit 20C. It wasn't even too windy (at least by local standards!). It was far too nice to waste when there was a cap to be had.

Like the cap at Georgetown, this one is in a place that you might not expect at first. It's right in the debris field of the Frank slide. Since I'd been here before I knew to park at the pullout at N49 35.339 W114 22.557. From here it's less than 200 metres to the cap. The first bit is walking across a field, following the off-roader's tracks. Once I'd walked around the corner of the rock pile to N49 35.402 W114 22.555 I followed one of several faint trails up onto the rocks. There's no climbing or scrambling involved here, just a bit of a rocky hill. Once on top the marker post was plainly visible and led me right to the cap.

The cap is grouted into the top of a shin high boulder that's perhaps 3 feet long. Though the cap has been dinged a couple of times, there's little problem making out the digits.

Thanks for the cap, outforthehunt. It's a nice view with only a little bit of effort involved in getting there.

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.
