Managed By: Icon Here Large Letters
Description:
This category is for marking large letters or entire words on hills or mountains, where the letters are visible from a great distance away on earth.
Expanded Description:
A waymark in this category should be the coordinates of a large letter or word on a hill or mountain, that is visible from at least a mile or two away. To be seen from this far away means the letters are probably over twenty feet high. Letters laid out on hillsides are often made from white rocks, but they could also be mounted on posts or stands. Often times the letters are so remote that they have trails leading to them. If there is no trail to the letters, it is OK to mark the nearest viewing point.

We're NOT looking for large names or signs located near street level or river level. If you've found words on or at ground level, perhaps they are a candidate for the Readable from Above category.

Officers will look for the waymarked letters in street view and satellite view for verification.

Instructions for Posting a Letters on Hills Waymark:
When posting a waymark the coordinates of the waymark should be where the letter is, unless the letter/word is inaccessible, then post the nearest viewing point.

The waymark name should begin with the letter(s) on the hillside, and what it stands for, if known. Following a single dash, the nearest city and state / province should be included in the waymark name.

Photos should show the letters in a close-up or telescopic view as the default and a second view showing the letters from a distance.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please include a photograph that you took showing the letters from some vantage point.
