found this today, awesome!

Assuming the benchmark is the top of Pioneer Hall. Was on campus today moving my oldest into his dorm. Along with logging some caches, wanted to log a benchmark.

This find comes courtesy of my GPS autorouting failing pretty spectacularly, so I was glad to have a benchmark find as the silver lining. :)

Found as described.

We were in the area attending a funeral. I had a list of benchmarks that I had hoped to visit in the area but the service and dinner put me to late to do any serious hunting. I was able to swing in at dusk on our way out of town to visit this intersection station. My wife attended and graduated from Linfield some years back so she seemed to enjoy pointing out the different places she lived or worked in her college years.
