Long Description:
While going to log a geocache
Spotted a benchmark there by
Well, it's not been waymarked yet
A Tygress can just wonder why....

Then waymark it herself.

Simple brass disc set in concrete above/to East side of central planter. Dead center in parking area. You will walk directly over it as you come down the steps on the East side to the lower area with the benches.

Drive carefully. Park carefully. Enjoy the view!

NOTE - the hardest part about this is getting there.
From Ark Row, head uphill. Take the one-lane road around/up the west side of the island, and it will lead you to the level parking spot and view at the top. As you head back down, if you take the LEFT split, it will be less of a SHARP turn for you when the split comes back together.

Condition: Mark found in good condition
