Good as of April 27, 2009

Rich and I took full advantage of this hot April day and headed to Minnewaska State Park (and eventually Mohonk Preserve) for some mountain biking. Thai at Lemongrass in New Paltz was our choice for dinner, but on the way there we stopped to search for this mark on the Route 299 bridge over the Wallkill River. The disk is in good condition and was easy to find, although it will probably be obscured by vegetation in the summer.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

Station recovered in good condition as described.

Autonomous (non-corrected) handheld GPS coordinates for the station are 41 44 48.9(N) 074 05 27.0(W).
