Found this more by accident since I didn't know a benchmark was here. Glad I noticed this one while searching for a nearby cache.

Spotted this one while heading to the Texas Challenge. Stop by and get the caches in this area.

As with the lookout tower, this one was definitely easy to spot...

Second day of a caching trip up here north of home. Stopped here for a couple of caches and this benchmark. Took a couple of photos.

Well, since they have revamped Love's Lookout, I concur that they have either moved the benchmark, or that the benchmark is about 15-20 feet due North of coords.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
