BCP676 - Fortress

After my enjoyable little outing up Little Beehive at Lake Louise I decided to head down and check out the newer Fortress cap. I found the situation largely unchanged as described in few earlier logs.

Oh well, I hit the trail and enjoyed the hard packed road way through eleven or twelve switchbacks to GZ and the AGL cap. What a splendid spot with plenty of wild flowers and awesome views of the very familiar surrounding peaks. Just a terrific spot for a cap - thanks OFTH for setting it up!

Similar to Mr. Canoehead's experience, the GPS showed a 14 - 15 km round trip with 500 - 600 metres of elevation.

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
