Found it van der Decken found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Friday, 11 November 2011Alberta, Canada

N 49° 42.558 W 112° 49.611

BCP559 - Lethbridge 7th Ave
Elev. 905 metres

The wind kicked in somewhere south of Nanton and never, ever, ever, let up. Once I made the turn east at Fort MacLeod I might have been able to put the car into neutral and coast to Lethbridge and points east; at one point, the tumbleweeds were passing me, and the ever present discarded Timmies cups were passing them! Yeah, it was a bit breezy today.

So naturally, no one was out on the street when I parked near the cap. People with more sense then this cacher were safely inside out of the wind. Even though the wind had buried the cap's depression under leaf fragments, there was no question of where the cap was going to be. The cap is tucked away a few inches away from the NW corner of the sidewalks intersections on the NE corner of 7th Avenue and 12B Street. A quick brushing away of the leaves revealed the moderately battered cap face to the world. Though the tool marks are myriad they are also small; all the digits are still legible. Thanks for the cap outforthehunt.

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
