I can see this benchmark out of the window of my house, and this evening I made a bike ride up to the summit of Mica Peak to see it up close.

Missed out on the TC that's up here somewhere, but stumbled upon the benchmark during my search. Fun hike!

I had to really search for this one. It was partially covered with moss.

Wouldn't ya just love to give this big soccer ball a boot down the hill? Ya-hoo!

Hard to miss this one! Found while hunting the nearby 'Mica Peak' geocache.

This is a gimme if you reach the top of Washingtons Mica Peak. Did you know there is an Idaho Mica Peak about 6 miles to the east. Some call it signal Point,
