BCP484 Wind Ridge
Since this cap was first released I've had an interest in coming up here. I've looked across at the ridge from a different vantage having hiked up Pigeon mountain a few times before and then seeing the photos posted by other cachers as well as the Pink Floyd video had turned this into a must do hike. Today joined by a group of fit young people, we made the trek up and it's safe to say no one was disappointed with the outing.
The scenery is of course excellent and the opportunity to go after a brass cap on a beautiful September day is to be cherished, especially when accompanied by some of my favorite young people. Getting to the top proved to be a slog at times but the rewards were great and the scenery was every bit as good as expected and maybe just a bit more. While we had blue and mostly cloudless skies with the accompanying warm temperatures , there was certainly no hint of the miserable weather that was to hit the southern province in the next few days. A number of other folks had the same idea and we encountered several people going up and down the hill today.
Carpe cap diem!
This rates right up there with my favorite caps. Thanks for posting it ofth..
