This cap was # 3 of 4 finds today. I parked in a nearby neighbourhood and made my way down to the valley bottom and then back up to the top of the ridge on which the cap is located. Then I got sucked into chipping the ice out of a deep hole close to ground zero. I was getting a mild indication from my compass so I thought it was down there somewhere. Then I put the compass down a few inches away from the hole (so I could chip faster) and got an unexpected, but strong reaction. There was the cap, 1 cm above ground level, just covered with a thin layer of new snow. Live and learn. Thanks for this cap ofth and for the hill climbing training – I need more of that.
