in no-snow conditions this would clasify as terrain 2.5, maybe 3 I think. When approached from the snowdump it is a pretty simple an nice walk, great view of he lake.
Cache is hidden in such a way that it can be spotted easily when close enough. TFTC.

We wacked our way over here from "broken bridge". Crossed the beaverdam, and took 20min to walk 100m... Only now it turns out the path would have taken us all the way. Ahwell: nice and easy walk for the return trip...

Wow ! This is an absolutely gorgeos spot ! I wish we would have brought lunch instead of eating at the vistors center ! This place is worth a lot more time than we can spare, unfortunately.
We are first to find for 2008, cache is in great shape. TFTC

Wij dachten een korte wandeling te gaan maken. Dat was ook wel zo... Als we tenminste gewoon op het pad waren gebleven. Maar nee hoor. Wij moesten weer de pijl van de GPS volgen. Op die manier kwamen we wel over een beverdam, door een bos en vlak langs een prachtiug meertje. Iedere meter vooruit kostte moeite, maar het was het zeker waard, want de cache ligtt naast een doodstil meertje in een soort dal, waardoor je helemaal niets meer van de omgeving hoort.

Anyway: Nice location. Is the cache supposed to be in a hole ? If so, it has been moved to the other side of something big. If not, the next geocacher might consider to fill up the hole a bit. We arived and thought, looking at the empty hole, the cache had been ripped.

Een heel mooi park. Eén deel is geschoren en onderhouden tot in de puntjes, een ander deel laten ze verwilderen. door het verwilderde deel rijdt een mini-treintje. In de lus van dit treintje ligt deze cache.
Wel een heel alternatief probleem: onze camperis bijna 10 meter lang, en past dus niet in de parkeervakken. We hebben het monster maar in de breedte over 4 normale parkeerplaatsen gezet, anders stond ie nog met een (flink) stuk op de weg.

Ook in Canada hebben ze regels en wetten die rijtijden reguleren. dus hebben ze overal parkeerplaatsen waar de grote jongens kunnen rusten. Helaas hebben ze daar niet overal asfalt voor neergelegd. In dit geval: zand voldoet prima. Tenminste, zolang het niet een paar dagen droog is. Dit was echt "Klein Kenia". Een gigantische zandstorm. Zand in je ogen, zand in je haren, zand overal. En dan nog eens een cache gaan zoeken ook. Gelukkig zagen we die op een gegeven moment in een boom hangen.

Oops. Where do you put a cache here ??!! We followed the hint more than the GPS actually, and spotted the odd thing imediately. When I picked up the hide, 3 mice jumped out and a truely horrible smell hit my nose. After the first trembles subsided, I had another look, and discovered a full mouse nest and 2 more tiny critters in the hide. And the smell... JUCK !
After carefully removing the cache from the hide, I could see it is in great shape. We signed the log, tok a bunch of pictures, and I carefully replaced the cache in the hide. Did I mention the smell ? JUCK ! I think the mice will remain where they are, with the babies and all, so next person: please be carefull ? Oh, and bring some deodorant, because the smell ? JUCK!

We came up from below. Holy mumma ! Steeeeep climb !
Cache was lying without any form of cover. We covered it up a bit

out: pathcoin
in: mickey keychain
Dus wij staan beneden in het ravijn, zegt die GPS dat de volgende cache hier rechts omhoog ligt. Ja dahaag ! Hier kun je alleen maar recht omhoog. We lopen een stuk verder, maar komen nog steeds geen pad omhooig tegen, dus dan toch maar: 100 meter recht tegen een bergwand op. Puf. Dan ben je goed kapot als je boven komt.

#0263: 1 juni 2008

Wide roads with tiny TV parking. Actually: no RV parking. We had to park along the road, because there is no way we would have fit in there.

This sounds like a great place: I can HEAR birds !
The cachewas located quickly. BOX IS BROKEN !! Contents still dry, due to overhanging rocks.

GCJE0C MirrorView on Fairview  geocaching 

#0273: 3 juni 2008
Holy mummy... We thought: neh. pfrt. Just 3km. Thats not too bad. Nice walk for the morning... Boy, were we flatlanders wrong !! This is the toughest walk we have taken in a long long time. Thank heavens for the teahouse. That they have an unwarmed "diningroom", and staff without a clue: does not matter. We needed an hour to cool off from the walk up. To the unaware (like us), parking is at 1735m above sealevel, the cache is roughly at 2075m above sealevel...(!) That's one and a half hours worth of walking. up.

The cache was searched for on the way down, and less hard than expected . Still quite a hike extra. What a breathtaking view from here. Thank you. I doubt very much is any mugle has ever seen mirror lake from up here.

Why don't you post actual cache coordinates??? N51 25.010 / W116 14.453 . Walking to the teahouse, the path makes a sharp turn. Go up there. You've just saved 10min of rockclimbing...

PS, you might want to consider putting a smaller logbook, or a bit larger cache. The logbok is torn apart, because it hardly fits through the opening. CACHE IS FULL !! VERY FULL !! Maybe next cacher could take the logbook out, and send it to owner by regular mail ? Since it looks like the owner has not been here for quite a while:

PPS: to the owner: a letter has been waiting for you in the cache since 2004...
In Lake Louise ligt een cache, maar als we het zo lezen is het wel een flinke wandeling. Als we op de kaart kijken is het een wandeling van 3.5 km, ofterwijl 2.5 uur heen en terug.
We gaan naar de parkeerplaats, en zien op de GPS dat de cache 1.85km bij ons vandaan ligt. Dus besluiten we de wandeling te maken. We denken er ongeveer 1.5 uur over te gaan doen. Foutje... Die 1.85km is hemelsbreed... Dit gaat flink omhoog en dus slingerend langs de bergwand. We lopen eerst langs Lake Louise. Hier is het heel druk met toeristen. Er staat een gigantisch hotel (ze noemen het een chateau), er zijn netjes aangelegde wandelpaden en bruggetjes. Het water van het meer is blauw: het lijkt wel of Disney langs is geweest. Het water is nog gedeeltelijk bevroren, wat een apart aangezicht geeft aan het spiegelmeer.
We beginnen vol goede moed aan de aangegeven wandeling. Al snel hebben we door dat het hier behoorlijk stijl omhoog gaat. We lopen tussen de dennenbomen, en beneden horen we de toeristen vrij snel al niet meer. Het is een mooie klim. Tussen de bomen door zie je het blauwe water van Lake Louise. Het lijkt steeds feller blauw te worden. Na ruim een half uur vragen we ons af of het nog wel zin heeft om door te gaan. We klimmen zo ontzetten hard. We waren toen al van 1730m hoogte naar 1890m geklommen, en we voelden dat best. Maar we hebben toch maar besloten om door te lopen. Zonde van het eerste stuk, om nu terug te gaan. Dus toch maar doorzetten.
Na nog eens ruim een half uur kwamen we bij “Mirror Lake”. Inmiddels waren we beland op een dusdanige hoogte dat er zelfs nog sneeuw op het pad lag. Mirror Lake was onwijs mooi, gedeeltelijk bevroren en met zocht op een stukje waterval. Het gaf weer nieuwe energie. Nog ongeveer 450m tot de cache en 800m naar het theehuis bij Lake Agnes. Voorbijgangers zeiden dat het open was. We besluiten eerst door te lopen om daar een kopje thee te drinken en uit te rusten en dan op de terugweg te gaan zoeken naar de cache.

Het was redelijk vol in het theehuisje en we schuiven aan bij 2 Nederlanders. We drinken thee en warme chocomelk, en eten een biscuit broodje. Na een uur bijkomen en kletsen beginnen we aan de terugweg.
De heenweg duurde 1 uur en 40 minuten. We waren van de parkeerplaats op 1730m geklommen naar het theehuis op 2110m. Op weg naar beneden zoeken we de cache. We klauteren over de rotsen tot Niels hem uiteindelijk vind. We ruilen de TB om, en gaan weer op het pad terug. Over de weg naar beneden doen we 1 uur en 20 minuten. Terug bij de camper zijn we helemaal kapot en bezweet. We rusten even uit voor we aan de autorit beginnen.

GCKG1W CanyonCache  geocaching 

#0276: 4 juni 2008

22 minutes after leaving the vehicle, we hit the jackpot. The main route is very busy with mugles, the sidepath to the cache is deserted. Very good place for a quiet moment and for a cache.
No searching needed to locate the cache. GPS brought us straight to the correct location.

For the unaware, like us: just pass the "lower falls", follow the path less than 2min and follow cache instructions. In and out WITHOUT SNOW should take less than 45min. including pictures.

Nice cache. Much larger than we expected. Some very nice items in there too !

coin "flagcoin"
tb " MLS soccer ball"
deck of cards

tb "World Traveler USA Geocoin"
1 euro chip "holland casino"
special paperclips
dutch button ("if you can read this, you are too close")
Ook weer zo'n plek waar je niet snel komt. Er staat wel een bord langs de kant van de weg, maar ja. Canyons zijn er genoeg. Dus waarom dan deze perse in wandelen ?
Het blijkt dat ze hier aan de wand van de canyon een pad hebben gehangen. En dás wel zo prettig, want de rivier gaat als een wilde tekeer. Gelukkig hangt het pad net hoog genoeg om droog te blijven. Erg grappig om te zien dat ze vroegâh anders langs de rivier liepen: over de rotsen, met touwen om je aan vast te houden. door de komst van het massatoerisme is deze gevaarlijke route afgesloten. Langs een makkelijk stuk van de oude route ligt wel onder een boom deze cache op ons te wachten.

After finally locating the parking place this was a very nice walk. We had some great views of the lake. It must be dangerous, because half way we were met by an 80cm high dog that walked with us till we hit the cache. He seems nice enough, but boy: that dog was HUGE!!!
Quite fun to see how this "canal" differs from the Roman ones: this was built to last a few years, while the Romans built for eternity. It shows...
