Found it van der Decken found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, 01 September 2013Alberta, Canada

N 53° 23.920 W 117° 34.389

BCP576 - Eaton Road
Elev. 1048 metres

I'd been up to no good a few dozen kilometres east of town and had to come into Hinton for gas and (just as important in an Alberta summer) windshield fluid. Naturally, I couldn't leave without looking for a cap or two, now could I?

Once off the highway, Hinton was just about as quiet and sleepy as you'd expect on a Sunday evening. I was able to park right around the corner and walk back to the cap. Even though the marker post seems to have wandered off locating the cap was easy as the hole it was in was quite obvious. A quick scrape and polish and the cap was ready for its... err... "beauty shot"? Wow, that's one beat up cap. I couldn't make out any numbers at all on scene though in the closeup picture I took many of them can be glimpsed. Thanks for the quick drive-up cap.

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
