BCP766 - Onoway
Heading west from Edmonton on the Yellowhead was challenging this morning as we avoided cars sliding across the road in front of us, and encountered roads with hard packed ice with ruts and ridges - nasty stuff!
In town the road leading to the cap site had 8 inches of heavy wet snow. Fortunately we found parking just off the roadway and within 30 metres of the cap site. It took a few minutes to find the cap with the on-going work along the road. We pulled out the metal detector and minutes later heard the familiar beep of the unit. Another fine spot for a cap - thanks OFTH for setting it up!
