    Re-stashed the cache give or take about 100km from its last point. No pick up photo due to being overwhelmed by skeeters.
    Here is the new 20

    This little road will get you access. I don't know if motor vehicles are permitted down there or not but no signage = go for it.

    thanks for posting mountainfever. I was really close to the location on Wednesday but ran out of time to pick it up.

    Anyone want to go with me to get it this weekend?

    I was there about 4pm. I didn't go over the bridge to see if anyone was there but I guess I should have. It was a fantastic ride yesterday, perfect weather and roads I hadn't been on before. What a fantastic area with endless riding options if you have the right bike. I was on the Vstrom and the main road was very fast and fun but dusty.

    didn't get the cache stashed today, I'll try tomorrow

    Take the trail to the left of the sign...

    [​IMG]

    A few steps past the tree with the tape on it, look to the right for a fallen log 5-6 feet into the bush

    [​IMG]

    Looking back at the trail head you'll see this...

    [​IMG]

    And the coords are N53 39.162 W113 34.816

    Picked it up this morning. I'll be dropping if off on Saturday on my ride. Does it matter where in Alberta it goes?
