Water tanks dismantled. What a shame.

Never knew this was a benchmark until we met Harry Dolphin and Andy Bear here yesterday. They were taking a few pictures of them. We have a Geocache in this area. I hope they stay here for a long time!

Found it.®

Easy find in a beautiful area. I'd been here before, so I knew where they were. We met Team Catahoula at the base of the west tank. A pleasure meeting you!

The tower is still there, right next to it's twin.

Found while working on Devil's Hole.

Still standing, though there are plans to remove them.

Found after the Live Rust cache. Towers still standing. Picture is of both towers.

Found this while doing the 'Live Rust' cache in this park. Hasn't been logged in a while but the demolition of the old buildings is essentially done and the towers seem to have survived.

Recovered by Bluehook on 11/15/2002. With the upcoming development plan for this area, this benchmark will probably not survive much longer.
