My wife and I are new to benchmark hunting and figure that it's a great way to get out and get some exercise, and having added fun.

We found this using my mobile phone. My coordinates read:

32 14 46.752 N
110 50 15.288 W

Now to figure out how to attach my photo!

Team Orion and Sarah the Lab's first Benchmark!! Stumbled upon it while looking for the Geocache Baseball Season Is In Full Swing. Interesting!

Found this easily while approaching a nearby cache. Interesting concrete slab, I wonder if it is pointing North ? Didn't have a compass with me to check.

My first Benchmark! Don't know why I was reluctant to look for these; was kinda fun! I look forward to finding many more.

N 32° 14.775 W 110° 50.257

Gps had 11 feet of accuracy.

Found this one in OK shape. Someone spraypainted around the benchmarker stone, but other than that it's in decent shape.

This one is in the open. And easy to find. Unlike the nearby CZ2410. Which seems to be fenced in.

Looks like this is a very popular find - like the rest I found it on the way back from a cache

Stumbled across this curious marker on the way back from a MO&GO cache.

Came across this one and several others while returning from a cache hunt in the area.

Found.
