I didn't know this was a bench mark at the time but I saw this on my trip to Lake Placid to climb some peaks.

Our first benchmark. Found while in Lake Placid for a three day weekend.

this one ain't so hard to find. the others were another story, and it was cold. very, very cold. and the phone was ringing and i was pretty sure that it was [url=http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=40061230-fe4e-4e1b-8d0d-3c9fe0c4bf3f]NFA[/url] but even though i was only about 20 feet from the phone i didn't get to it on time.

we decided to save the other marks for another day and took some pictures of ourselves at [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=8ef82929-e2a5-4a7d-9993-2d66d63aae6f]john brown's grave[/url] before continuing our jouney from [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=e882f0d6-e0d8-47f6-b5d6-e2e9e133e72c]here[/url] to [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=adad930f-dde0-401e-b5d9-8d7000c45587]here[/url].

This was the only one of the JBG marks we could find toady but at least it was easy.
