BCP792 - BVPete's Cap
Elev. 1349m

We approached from the river bridge, gathering the required information along the way. Though we could see scraps of blue sky on the horizon, overhead was low, grey cloud. And a light rain was falling from them. On the bright side, there was a brand new virtual ahead, urging us on. Onwards, and (this is a BVPete cache after all!) most definitely upwards. The stairs weren't quite slippery enough to require the traction aids that some of us had brought alone, but they did require constant attention.

With (huff, puff) proof that our hearts were still beating, we headed up the last little slope towards the cap. Despite the snow cover, the cap itself was clear. It's in reasonably good shape, having only collected a small number of tool marks over the past 40 some odd years. It didn't even require cleaning to be ready for its beauty shot.

Thanks for the brass cap, BVPete. It's been a couple of years since I logged any virtual, and for it to be a brand new brass cap made it all the sweeter.

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.
