A walk through Caumsett on Lloyds Neck, Long Island yielded two caches, three benchmarks and several samples of moss and lichen — not to mention an enjoyable walk on a brisk but sunny day.

Found further North on the path past the “Sticks and Stones” cache, these tightly grouped benchmarks: The roof cones of each of these twin water tank towers (KU2688 and KU2689) and another set in a concrete monument, just a few inches above ground, looking like a rock in the foreground (KU2674). So many benchmarks in one place — out in the relative wilderness of fair sized national park!

I had visions of rabid squirrels as I reached down into a hole to retrieve this cache. From my height I could not look directly down into the hollowed out trunk. Little did I know how well founded those fears were until after I removed the cache and photographed the hide (below): Nibbled nut shells lined the bottom, evidence of wild animals with sharp teeth indeed!
