I have no idea what hill you're on. Have done very little riding in that area. But, is it safe to say that you're within 20 miles of Rt. 20 somewhere between Rockport and Washington Pass?

Probably within 20 miles of SR20, but east of Washington Pass, and Loup Loup Pass.

Never been there. Just a guess.

Uscgs benchmark

Here's a little different challenge.

Where is this? To win, you have to explain to all of us how to look up the location of a benchmark when all you have is a picture of it. Because I don't know. In fact, I don't know where this benchmark is exactly. I know the date I took it and where I was riding on that day. But I don't remember where I saw this. So . . . educate us!

Even better, if you know the State, go here:

http://www.geocaching.com/mark/nearest.aspx
Input the designation as E 216. (the space is required). Input the State.

This only works if the benchmark is in that geocaching database.

Good job Sherlock Holmes! I think he remembers where he took that pic now.

Thanks, Steve.

Geocaching, huh? I would guess that database is only gonna get bigger.

You're up.

You can also look up the NGS datasheet with the station name and state.
http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/ds_desig.prl

If you want to go benchmark hunting, besides geocaching search engine you can search from ngs here:
http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/datasheet.prl


The NGS Data Sheet

See file dsdata.txt for more information about the datasheet.
