BCP433 Green Mountain
N50 37.3928 W114 37.4646
3m

Well, we hit the trail at about 0930h. I have spent a lot of time at the Sheep falls as a kid, but I had never seen the Indian Oils falls. Very nice, and some amasing rock formations. When we started the muddy ground was frozen, so it was quite nice. We stopped at the Green Mountain Trail cache, but didn't find it. My GPS only had a lock on 3 satalittes, so bad accuracy. We continued up the trail. Didn't have to ford Dyson Creek as it was low and we were able to cross on rockes. We headed up on the North side of the West face of the ridge (Green Mountian is more of ridge or foothill than a mountain). I had to switch to my BlueTooth GPS as the one in my phone was not performing. Went up a dranage between two bands of rock cliffs. We reached the top of the ridge, and did a nice easy ridge walk along the top to the Cap. We then found the Green Mountain cache.

After taking in the view, we headed down the South face down a dranage. Turned West near the bottom so that we would hit the Green Mountain trail. The trail had thawed out, and was rather muddy. When we reached Dyson Falls, we looked for the Green Mountian Trail cache again, and found it no problem using the other GPS. The rest of the hike was un-eventfull.

The GPS log showed 14.5km and 6h0m8s. My Dad's foot was bugging him, so we went a little slow. I'm not sure how long it would have taken otherwise. Here is the GPS track log http://gpsed.com/track/3125705753705595840

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.
