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

Saturday, 08 October 2011Alberta, Canada

N 55° 12.527 W 115° 01.063

BCP435 - Flat Top Mountain

Well this cap was our primary target for the day. We found a fairly good access point that took us a ways off the beaten trail. The wild fire had come through this area with a number of charred trees and a significant number that were left untouched.

We couldn't drive in very far as the bridges on the access road were burnt and only the old metal framework remained. So we hiked up to the tower - fording a few streams, avoiding significant boggy and mud patches along the ATV / cutline trail.

We arrived at the lookout tower by mid-afternoon and snapped a few pictures before continuing on to the cap - dead in the middle of the bush - some 500 metres away.

It was the perfect day for this off the beaten trail hike and quite challenging with the many drainages crossing the area - simply a very cool location - thanks OFTH for the interesting cap placement and to Strider's Ride for the terrific conversation along the trail!

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.
