BCP203 - Whaleback Ridge

Well we finally got around to checking out Whaleback Ridge this afternoon after a fair bit of planning over the last year or so.

We found a great approach just off Hwy 22 with the permission of a local rancher. The hike took us through pastures, cutlines and a fine trail along Bob Creek, down a power line right of way and up a nice wide trail to the Whaleback Ridge.

The search for the cap took a bit of work, but after checking out a few spots we uncovered the cap. Terrific views at the top with all the fantastic fall colours. Our round trip track showed a distance of 12.3 km.

TFTH in a fine spot and we'll post a few pictures shortly. This is simply a must do hike!

Through the pasture we go!

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
