Long Description:
This benchmark is easy to get to via Kelly Drive to Waterworks drive, then walk to the coords. It is not in the GC.com database (closest is 0.4 miles away). I've blocked out the year on it as it is used for a new multi cache in the area. I would appreciate any pictures to follow also block out the year.
