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..

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
