The Crowsnest Highway, also known as the Interprovincial or, in British Columbia, the Southern Trans-Provincial, is a 1,163 km (722 mile) long principal highway through the southern parts of British Columbia and Alberta, providing the shortest land connection between Vancouver and Medicine Hat. The highway, which is mostly two lanes, was officially incorporated in 1932, mainly following a mid-19th century gold rush trail originally traced out by an engineer named Edgar Dewdney. It takes its name from the Crowsnest Pass, the route the highway takes when crossing the Continental Divide between B.C. and Alberta. The highway is designated as Highway 3 for its entire length.

The cap is placed in close proximity to a plaque commemorating the completion of the Crowsnest Highway. The cap also has an exceptional view of the Lethbridge High Level Bridge. Posted before and after shots as a hailstorm engulfed me moments after arriving at the cap site.

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.
