Found this one while spending a few days in Sac

On our 2nd day in Sacramento, we add a few Benchmarks to our list... Thanks.


While downtown caching today we walked around the block that the church sits on and then to the top of the parking garage next door. Everything appears to be as described.


Saw while visiting the area.

Spotted this while caching.

We could learn a lot by duplicating architecture like this. Our modern style has a lot to be desired compared to buildings like these and the amount of time they have been around.

Found it!

Found after looking for five crosses...

Found while visiting Sacramento. Beautiful spire in good condition.

Still here. Where else would it go!? Didn't know that something like this could be a benchmark. Discovered this today while looking for the Five Crosses Cache. Unfortunately, I didn't save the picture I took on my phone.

I spotted this benchmark while I was in the area today.
