We did not find this guy and think it has been destroyed, however; in matching the picture in the previous log that was taken at a non log-able bench on the other side of the highway.

Found while caching with goldennuggetz, Team Geo-Clarks, Supercheeseburger, and RoxieMama.

Unlike previous finders, I wasn't geocaching today. I came looking for this benchmark! And found it. Nice view also. Maybe I'll come back for the cache sometime.

Looks good.

Found this today as I returned to visit Geocache "serenity". It is in good shape - I attached a photo.

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 May 1994.
  • 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.
