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

Tuesday, 03 November 2009Alberta, Canada

BCP456 Kananaskis POW Camp
N51° 01.715’ W115° 01.941’

Mrs BVPete and I were out hiking some of the rearranged trails in the Lusk Creek area this afternoon and took the opportunity to locate this cap. The Kananaskis Field Station is a fascinating place to explore with a long interesting history. It is well worth the drive to visit the facility and check out the exhibits and the many trails in the area (including a part of the Trans Canada Trail).

The cap numbers are hidden by the only remaining Guard Tower. The building also served as a fire lookout tower on the ridge on the other side of Barrier Lake before being moved back to the Field Station as an exhibit. Thanks for posting a cap with some history ofth.

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.
