"Always carry a compass" - nicolo

Beautiful stroll to the cap today. I was worried because it was raining on Deerfoot as I headed south to Inglewood but it was fine by the time that I arrived at the bird sanctuary.

Several people were in the sanctuary, MOFO cameras in hand. I quickly saw what looked to be the remains of a marker post, then I started compass sweeping. I managed to hit gold in about 30 seconds. A bit of digging and scraping and I uncovered the cap, very close to the marker post (see the pic).

The hints are no longer valid, I'd say a good hint now would be : "3 feet north of the biggish boulder, 1 foot east of the marker post."

Anywho, this was a fun cap. I love it when I can find a cap that's hidden, using a basic compass.

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
