Found it Black Shark found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Saturday, 12 September 2015Alberta, Canada

BCP430 High Level Bridge

After finding an excellent cache nearby we drove on down the road, under the bridge to a parking lot very close to the cap. We expected this might be a tough one to find so Mr Shark started up the metal detector. The trees in Edmonton are more colourful than in Red Deer and have begun to drop accumulating numbers of leaves--never helpful in searches for things on the ground. Mr ManjaLou identified a ground zero and we began to search. Moments later a depression was spotted mere centimetres from GZ, leaves were brushed aside and brass was uncovered. Mr Shark was a bit disappointed but brought the metal detector over to have a "detect" so it would know better what it was looking for the next time. The cap was cleaned up further for portraits and a small piece of flagging was tied to an overhanging branch. The cement surrounding the cap nicely enlarges the target if one is probing for it through vegetation or snow. The river view was enjoyed before we moved on. This was the longest search of our day, but even it didn't last five minutes; our Search Party Day with ManjaLou was very successful with quick finds and a 100% find rate! Thanks for the scenic cap, outforthehunt.

Thanks For The Cache! Thanks For The Cache!

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
