We spent our morning getting acquainted with Islamorada. We searched for a few benchmarks in Founders' Park, walked some sections of the Heritage Trail, and drove up and down the highway, checking out the sights and stopping here and there to check the bridges for benchmarks. This was one of them. This mark is set on a curb of the old bridge over Channel #2. It is in good condition. The old bridge is the more northerly of the two and is now used for hiking, biking, and fishing.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
