Found it Black Shark found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Saturday, 12 September 2015Alberta, Canada

BCP159 Edmonton

This was our favourite brass cap of the day! As ManjaLou and ourselves moved along with a small group of other tourists we were amused by the story of the resourcefulness and practicality of the Province's first Mace, stunned by the moving picture of Queen Mary and soaked up the history and beauty of the building. When we reached the cap we quietly pounced on it while the guide spoke of other things. She was bemused when she turned to see what we were doing but much less bewildered than the others in the group, I suspect. (They politely didn't inquire about what we were doing crouched on the floor with cameras, GPSs and mascots!) Then we lined up for our turn to stand and appreciate this cap's other unique aspect!

It was underwhelming and a bit disappointing to enter the Legislature Building via a discreet door into the basement rather than the main door, even knowing the reason for the change, but we were delighted to exit by that door onto a wonderful scene. The sunshine still shone brightly, it had warmed up a few degrees and a good number of people were enjoying the grounds in a variety of touristy and typical ways to appreciate any park. They were even wading and playing in the reflecting pool which had previously been so unruffled and formal! A bit more lively than an hour before.

Thanks, outforthehunt, for the three caps that brought us here for an excellent experience and the highlight of our Edmonton Search Party with ManjaLou!

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
