Found it cd.cuts found An ASCM Virtual Cache

Friday, December 21, 2018Alberta, Canada

We had already come to the Hydro plant in the summer a few years ago for the nearby Earthcache, but had only walked down then up the staircase from above - missing out on the nice river walk and the great viewpoint. Today was indeed a lot colder, though surprisingly tolerable with a T-shirt under my big winter coat. The little bit of wind was enough to remind myself that I should put my toque on "at the next stop", but each time I got distracted by the task at hand and by the time we were done climbing the staircase, I was warm enough and no longer needed the extra warmth layer. The view was beautiful along the river on this sunny day, and even more gorgeous from the viewpoint above. We used the spoiler to locate the benchmark, cleared the little snow with our boots then made it readable by pouring some water on it. I must say that we were very surprised by the engraved word! We stayed a bit longer to take in the view, and also noticed the hoodoos forming on the side, reminding us of a few Earthcaches we have done in this province in the past.

Thank you BVPete for bringing us here. Despite coming so close last time, we had missed out on the best scenery.

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 Waymarking.com.
