While green nikki and I were geocaching on Presque Isle, we had a list of benchmarks to keep an eye out for. We've recently added this interest and endeavor to our activities. We didn't spot them all but are happy to log the ones we confirmed at the location.

Checked out benchmarks with OddMushroom while in Presque Isle...still new to this but learning.

Saw it from pier

Found this one while standing on the south pier.

Found this one years ago. My son took a picture of it and won 3rd prize at the Warren Co. fair. I saw it again today from across the inlet.

Visiting the lighthouses of Lake Erie and stopped at this one on North Pier. You can even see the snow the clipper is bringing!

While out geocaching, I had to explore the light house. On the way, I thought - how can there not be a benchmark nearby? I looked down and there it was!
