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

Sunday, 24 October 2010Alberta, Canada

N 52° 54.518 W 117° 11.507

BCP419 - Cardinal Divide

My goodness did we ever get an early start from Calgary this morning to check out this amazing area. We ended up at the parking coordinates for the cap just after 10:00 am, following a few cache and capping stops on the way up. The trail leading to the ridge is well maintained and would be a fine spot for ATVers. As TiE mentioned the hike involves little elevation gain, has outstanding views, and is simply a pleasant ridge walk.

What a great spot - thanks OFTH for setting this one up!

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.
