There isn't much better (in December, anyway) than a sunny, 64° day. We simply had to take advantage of our long morning by scouting out some probable benchmark locations near Clifford. We hadn't even intended to get out of the car, but when I drove slowly past our plotted coordinates for TT 28 T and spotted a prominent outcrop in the woods with a bright blue spot on its high point, we had to take a closer look. The disk is set into an outcrop (approximately 3' x 5') in open woods just a few yards northeast of Hickory Ridge Road, and directly east of the T-intersection of Hickory Ridge Road and T-564 (Telep Rd.). The benchmark disk is in excellent condition.
