Found as described with a coating of landscape gravel over the top. Our coordinates are a little different than those shown on the webpage. This was a fun, quick, evening find after work.

Be careful if you go to find this one between 5 and 6:00 PM. You'll be close to traffic.

Indeed, the location is quite well described, but somehow I still couldn't find it. I didn't want to see like a psycho to the neighbors, so I didn't dig around much. The coordinates, incidentally, put me across 151st St. and about 75 feet east down the sidewalk.

This is a short walk from my house, so my three-year-old daughter and I went looking for it after dinner tonight. Good thing it was right where the description says it should be -- I forgot to bring our eTrex. The marker was covered by a thin layer of dirt and gravel, and the lettering is still very clear and legible. I tried getting a rubbing to scan and upload (since it may be a few days until I finish the roll of film in my camera), but all I had was the printout and a crayon; needless to say, the results were less than stellar. :-)

Update 2003-06-20: A few days turned into an entire year, and somehow I still don't have those photos I took when I first found this benchmark. So, I went back out with my camcorder (I can capture those digitally, thanks to FireWire) and took some shots. I even tried to follow the NGS requirements for digital photographs, but managed to do it wrong, so I'll be going out yet again. Sigh.

That's my attempt at "a small, temporary sign... with the station designation (name) printed so it is clearly visible in the photograph". Since it isn't, I need to retake this photo.

This picture is the real spoiler. That's my attempt at a temporary sign leaning against the post. You can't read the station designation on it, so I need to retake the photo.
