went on a road trip with nishallow to get this one thank you for the great cache!!!

found this while out checking my cache.

Found today while I was grabbing a nearby cache. Thanks for sharing. photo uploaded later. Still in good shape.

My receiver showed this to be off by slightly over 230 feet. As brub2 said, once you are this close it is obvious where to look. Sidetracked here with team h-d between geocaches GCF886 and GCYP0A

The coords were off by a couple hundred feet, but if you are that close, it is obvious where this bridge is. The mark is in excellent condition.

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.
