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

Thursday, 19 July 2007Alberta, Canada

N 51° 18.515 W 115° 08.426

BCP071 - Devils Gap

I just got the good old hiking boots back and needed a good test to check out the newly sewn boots. I knew the parking area for the cap, a few kilometres before the dip down to the river. So using a bike I rode down to the end of the ATV trail and enjoyed a one kilometre or so hike to the cap site.

The last three hundred metres to the cap site are pretty amazing when you see the height of the cliff that needs to be navigated. I headed south and found a suitable approach in short order.

The views from the top were simply amazing as you could see Calgary, Black Rock Mountain, Devils Head and many other landmarks from this fine location. It took a bit of work to find the cap as it just sits on the ground on an embedded piece of rock. The metal rods described in the hint are not well marked and are themselves only flush with ground level. The Alberta Survey sign doesn't mark the cap site at all, and is probably 10 - 15 metres NE of the cap.

Just a great afternoon - TFTH and I'll send along the pictures.

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
