BCP759 - Champlain Park
Elev. 1069 metres

The park was empty when I rode up this afternoon. Even with a landscaping service working across the street, the neighbourhood was quiet.

It didn't take very long to track this one down. I tip my hat to those brave souls who came by here in the winter. A find in the snow would have been a completely different kettle of fish. Today it was just a matter of following the GPSr to the coordinates and a short look around for the appropriate divot.

This cap's in moderately poor shape. Urban caps sure can get bashed around, can't they? The surface is mostly tool marks and several of the digits are obscured.

Though the cap finds were still coming through in waves when I'd set out for my afternoon ride, by the time I got home the inevitable had happened and multiple finds had been turned off. I guess we'll see who's really into finding caps now that there's no "official" smiley to be had.

Thanks for the cap on a sunny spring day, outforthehunt. (FOUND)

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.
