Wow! What a great team I was with today.
One of our first stops of the morning and we discovered the large post (actually 4 with this one in the centre) but could not locate a cap after some good old fashioned digging with sticks and poking around. Tried for a while but we were uncertain if there WAS a cap or if the post was what we were looking for.
Spent the morning hiking around and grabbing cache and at a high point Brendan was able to access the webpage and we viewed a photo of a capper looking where we had been digging and taking a photo of the cap so we KNEW it must be there.
Came back on our way out of the area and with some elbow grease and Swiss Army knives, Brendan and Ian slowly chipped away the solid ice on top of the cap and soon it was exposed and gleaming. Well done guys!!
Thanks for another cap in a great (strange) place! Saw some HUGE moose tracks in the wetland area to the west.

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
