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

Saturday, August 1, 2009Alberta, Canada

N 53° 46.050 W 112° 46.572

BCP112 - Lamont
Elev. 645 metres

The storm that I'd been leapfrogging ahead of all day was finally catching up with as I began the turn for the long drive home. The road that showed on the GPS turned out to be a one lane pathway with no real place to pull off. Between that and the rain that was beginning to fall from the leading edge of the storm, a quick find was of the essence.

There was no immediate sign of the cap at ground zero except for a few broken pieces of lath. The marker post is long gone, so I was glad to see something to let me know I was in the right area. The long hint said the cap was above ground, but that didn't seem to be true anymore either. A bit of probing with a screwdriver uncovered the cap covered by loose dirt in the midst of a ground squirrel colony at ground zero. The cap itself is in very good shape, though whoever did the original stamping was having a really, really bad day! Thanks for the 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
