I found this one whilst caching for virtuals in the area.

Discovered whilst on a caching adventure from Australia. I am visiting this great country primarily for the Ape Mega (and Ape cache), the total solar eclipse and to have fun on some crazy road trips across the country with friends......my time in Yellowstone was spectacular.

Thanks so much for the Benchmark- woo hoo, loving these rare types of finds!!

Thanks for the benchmark

Found in good shape, as described.

Found in good condition beneath the cover.

There is a cover over it, but I assume I found the right spot as it meets the decription.

We must have driven by 1000's of times. Found with out GPS, wanled right up to it.

Just getting around to logging some previously found benchmarks.

Found this pretty easily, just had to follow description of the location and there it is.

Easy find.

found it w/o a GPS unit- very easy to find

I found this one with my dad. From the photos I didn't need a GPS unit.

N 40° 13.508 W 111° 39.803

Reading the official history turned out to be very helpful. The first time I tried, I only had the coordinates and couldn't find it. After reading the history, I walked right to it.

Strange--two people found this one within a day of each other.

I had a Provo police officer get curious and ask me what I was doing. When I explained it to him, he didn't seem to understand, but at least he realized that I wasn't doing any harm.
