Border jumping for caches
Today’s geocaching adventure took me across the northern Alberta border. Originally hidden in 2008, this geocache was found and logged by 95 people. Ten people rated it a favourite. And when you get there, you can see why. The artwork is amazing!
This geocache that I wanted to find today is called a nano cache because it is so small. Geocaches can be labelled large (i.e. 5 gallon bucket), regular (i.e. shoe box ), small (i.e. sandwich container), micro (i.e. film canister size), nano (i.e. a bolt), other (i.e. magnetic strip), or unknown (used when you want the size of the cache to be a mystery). I found this magnetic cache somewhere near these cool metal sculptures in Saskatchewan. After I found the tiny container holding the log book, I signed my geocaching name on the tiny scroll of paper that was hidden inside. The scenery on the drive to this location included fields of cows, a massive junk yard, and a beaver dam. There wasn’t much traffic on the road, and I didn’t mind searching in the rain because these works of art fascinated me. Canada has quite a few roadside attractions, and of all the ones I have seen, I would rate these as some of my favourites.
In this article, I didn’t include all the sculptures that can be found there. But close to the area, there is a pink flower, a pair of tall white feathers, and two white cows. The parking was easy and you could find this cache even if there was a lot of snow on the ground.
The hiders of this cache provide a helpful hint on the official geocaching website. The hint, and their title for this cache really narrows the scope of the search down. Children would find this geocache particularly fun because they could pose with the creatures.
