Write note Takin it Easy posted a note for Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Friday, January 9, 2015Alberta, Canada

BCP676 Fortress
N50° 49.022 W115° 11.616

BVPete, van der Decken and I decided to check out the new Fortress cap today. We brought along various sledding devices with the plan to have a bit of fun on the return trip on the access road. When we pulled up to the gate, it was closed and locked as expected as the road has been closed for some time now. What we didn't expect was the signage from Alberta ESRD and Fortress Resort stating that the area was closed to the public and any unauthorized access will be prosecuted. There was also comments about the area being covered with motion capture cameras. I've attached the sign for reference. It appears that access is currently only granted for CAT skiing with approval and that is why the road appears maintained and in use. There is a number and e-mail address for contact. I may give them a shout to see if such access would be permitted but for today we altered our plans and headed up the east end of Horton's Ridge. A fine day was had nonetheless.

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
