Found it PDOP's found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Monday, 24 October 2005Alberta, Canada

BCP243 Dalehurst

Came at this one from the west after parking off the Emerson Creek Road. For those of you looking at the Google satellite view the more obvious approach would seem to be the Obed Mine access road to the east but both it and the bridge over the Athabasca River are gated and closed.

From my parking spot it was a 2.8 km walk along cutlines to the cap. Crossing Baseline Creek required a 20 metre drop then climb back up to the cap which was exposed and marked by a GP.

Went looking for the Bearing Tree that OFTH mentioned and found a pine with a blaze in the trunk complete with a spike driven into it.

On the trip back I came across an old collapsed log cabin complete with ironing board, iron and hot air popcorn popper. It would seem that life in the bush isn't as rustic as it once was.

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
