Found today while on a geocaching road trip.

I was in town geocaching and decided it was time to log a benchmark too. We drove by the impressive St. Andrews church several times while in town then later went out and visited St. Andrews Cemetery before heading home.

Have been in town for years and seen the cross, but was not aware that it was a Geological Marker until the last few months and have finally gotten around to logging it in.

I go by the church all the time but finally stopped for a photo today. Thanks!
