Found it Black Shark found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Saturday, 12 September 2015Alberta, Canada

BCP337 Hawrelak Park South

We decided to drive around to find this cap, but not sure that was quicker or shorter than just walking from the North cap. It did give us a look at this park which humans and geese were out in numbers to enjoy in the hot sun. Well, they were taking advantage of the nice weather but most were pursuing their pleasures in the shade and, in the case of some of the geese, in the water.

Maybe it was the heat, but once we left the Sharkmobile this was a march that wouldn't end. From the parking lot we speculated that the cap was atop a certain hill. But it wasn't. It wasn't under a couple laying on the grass either and we gratefully gave them a comfortable berth. Nor was it at the edge of the pond or near the couple with monopoles photographing butterflies and dragonflies. We arrived at the top of another hill and finally the GPS conceded that we had arrived. Sure enough, a quick scan of the ground immediately around GZ revealed another cap that needed minimal brushing to uncover. And it was in the shade! ManjaLou and ourselves were starting to feel the 27 C heat and happy to be pursuing our pleasure in the crowd pleasing shade. While at the other cap we could hear a speaker speaking passionately about some indiscernible topic but from here we could hear music. Mr ManjaLou got caught up in the beat for a moment!

Not that our route to the cap had been serpentine but the walk back didn't seem nearly as long. How does that work? But there were no complaints. Thanks for bringing us to this popular park with the two Hawrelak caps and the short walk to this one. Really, it is a short walk.

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
