Long Description:
While the guidelines would allow separate waymarks since Pluto is a good walk uphill, I am going to do this model as a set. The main waymark coordinates are for the sun. Each planet (except for Pluto) has its own picture - and was suppose to have own coordinates, but Waymarking.com does not display them with the pictures.

There is a $3 admission fee for the park, but the hiking, nature preserve, etc. are well worth the cost.
