Together with Dingo79 I found this benchmark :-)

Together with Miela78 I had a really interesting journey. We could even find some geocaches and benchmarks like this one.
Concerning this benchmark we had much fun in finding which was not so difficult ;-) The benchmark made our journey even more interesting and with its help we had the chance to discover the surroundings in a more interesting way!

First try:
Cool.??

Second try:
Quite simply searched, found, finished ...

And now again right:
On our way from Leipzig on vacation to New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Niagara Falls, Cleveland, Toledo, Chicago, Sioux City, Badlands NP, Mount Rushmore, Bighorn Mountains, Cody, Yellowstone NP, Jackson, Grand Teton NP, Salt Lake City, Bryce Canyon NP, Lake Powell, Grand Canyon, Williams, Las Vegas, Mojave Desert, Los Angeles, Visalia, Yosemite NP, Modesto and San Francisco we came right here. Of course, we also wanted this one GeoCache / Benchmark on the To-Do list to pick up. And now there is a smiling face. There were no problems ... Yes, the destination fits. Thus: the end is good, all right ...

In other words:
Everything is there, where it belongs, undamaged and waiting for the next visitors.

Now we like to say:
Thank you for your GeoCache / Benchmark and another smiley on our map.

Observed station from Central Park. I am here from Ohio on Red Cross, Hurricane Sandy duty. I have been working on a cache for over a week during lunch breaks and the few available after-work hours of light. I loved traveling all over the park to see those beautiful structures some I have seen in movies.

Found while on a trip to NYC.

Found while in New York.

This was my first time to NYC and Central Park. These buildings really caught my attention with the twin towers on each side of it. Noticed a couple of tall ladders on top of the buildings. I wouldn't be climbing those.
