yup its there takes a min. to find but its there but worn a bit

Had to climb a bit, but there it was, almost dead center in the top of the small building. Pretty worn.

The building is in an area marked private no tresspassing. I know a few people from within the area so I took a chance. I had to climb a nearby tree as I am not 10ft. tall. Marker appears to be fairly worn.

This takes a minute because iyt is on top of a small building!!! But its there!
