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

BCP481 - Springvale
Elev. 986 metres

I took today off, intending to sleep late after a long night of meteor watching. But as usually happens when I try and watch the Perseids, Mother Nature had already made other plans. I kept an eye on the cloud cover, but never saw any clear patches develop. So the morning arrived with no meteor having been seen and eight hours of sleep. Hrmph. Oh well, I certainly wasn't going to let today go to waste. A cap was calling.

Parking near the cap is a bit of an issue, but the cap itself is a pretty easy find even though there's no marker. Just head for ground zero and look for a small 2-3" deep depression in the ground. The cap was under about an inch of dirt and mud at the bottom of the depression. A moment of digging, a few more of polishing and it was ready for its closeup. The cap's surface is marred by a handful of tool marks, but the numbers can still be read. 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
