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

Saturday, 11 April 2009Alberta, Canada

BCP430 High Level Bridge

I came by here a few weeks ago but there was way to much snow to mount an attack. Now that the snow is well on it's way to disappearing for the summer I decided I should see to this discovery.
It looks like this area has not seen any activity for quite some time. It has been over grown with bush and long grass. There was no signs of a depression and having the gps zero me out near the edge of tall overgrowth it was sniffer time. I sweeped the area and got numerous false hits but then I got a promising tone. I poked around a bit and was hitting something solid. It seems quite large and at first I though is was a rock. Even as I started to dig and cleared some of the overburdon I still though I was exposing a rock but I had to make sure. A biut more digging and I knew I was looking at cement. A bit of brushing and I spotted brass!!
I cleaned off the cap and pushed back the dirt leaving the cap nicely exposed for the next seekers.
Thanks for the challenging cap hunt!!

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.
