BCP583 - Stirling
Elev. 929 metres
With my original plans of caching around Crowsnest Pass scuttled by high winds and road construction, I decided to meander my way over to Stirling to see if I could find this one. I made excellent time thanks to the relentless westerly gale force winds blowing today. It's not often I see truckers pulled off waiting out the worst of the wind, but I saw that today. Can't say as I blame them, as I saw some of the trucks that were still brave enough to be on the road rocking in an "interesting" fashion when a cross gust hit them.
Stirling was a bustling hub of activity this afternoon; I actually saw another car on the road! There's ample parking right beside the cap (which is [i]not[/i] in the cemetery, for the sensitive folk among us). There's a hold right beside the marker post nestled up against the power pole but don't let that fool you. The cap is several metres west, much closer to the road. This one may give you some trouble if you're trying in the winter with snow and ice on the ground as it's quite a distance from the marker post and below ground as well, but today that wasn't an issue. The cap, sitting as it does in the bottom of a depression, is pretty beat up and the numbers are a bit hard to make out even in an enlarged photo. But they're there, mostly! Thanks for the cap outforthehunt.
