BCP136 East Coulee
N51° 19.905’ W112° 28.335’
Van der Decken and I proceeded south to East Coulee after finding the elusive BCP302 in order that I could make my second attempt to find this cache. I, of course knew where it was but a foot of solid ice had defeated me on my previous try. This time the hole was completely full of wet, sloppy muck, even though everything else around here was bone dry (why are bones dry anyway?). However, some previous cacher had left a perfect summer digging / baling tool in the hole so, I made quick work of exposing and cleaning the cap. Bless you previous cacher!
Van der Decken had spotted some interesting old foundation at the foot of the nearby steep slope, so we went to investigate. As we walked he kept warning me about Prickly Pear Cactus, you know – watch out, don’t step there, if you don’t kneel there you will never walk again – that sort of thing. I must need a lot watching as I still managed to suffer some minor impalements in my attempt to get a cactus photo. I am lucky he was there or I might have become permanently captured by the pointy, prickly-pears spears and learned exactly where the term “bone dry” comes from. Thanks van der Decken!
Thanks for posted this cap ofth, I enjoyed the search and managed to keep my white T-shirt clean – not bad. A Prickly-pear Cactus flower hides the numbers in the cap shot.
