FTF with Alargusbug Today

Beautiful day at sunrise..Fog and Crystal Mist with Hoar frost and Red Sunrise.Met Alargusbug at Tims at 7 am and setout for Grouard. The walk into Cutbank is along the Trans Canada Trail which is really very cool because this is part of the original Peace River to Grouard trail that all the missionarys,gold strikers,trappers,hunters,surveyors,etc used to access the North Side Lesser Slave lake from in the" Good Old days". The path has not been maintained except occasionally and is a "footpath only" trail.It shows as being 5 km long at the start of the trail @ N 55 30.65514 W-115 57.99816. The trail to the cap is exactly 4 km long and can be accessed by 50 m of hard bushwack at the very end. You rise +_ 20m to the top of a small hill.3 GP markers and a Centre post make it very easy to find.

Thanks OFTH for a spectacular walk. Wouldn`t have been as much fun without the great company..I enjoy these more than any geocache.I highly recommend this one,especially in the summer when you are walking through berry land and virgin forests that have never been logged.You can see the lake all along the trail as you are only 50-100m from the shore at most times.

Are you sold yet S_H?

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.
