Description   EN   

I love finding geodetic markers and this was no exception!

 

This particular marker is located at the Elgin Depot Museum.  If you want to learn more about Elgin history, please check out the exhibits inside.  The Union Pacific Railroad still operates trains on the nearby tracks, although the depot itself was named after the union of the Southern Pacific and "Katy" railroads.  Elgin was a major transportation crossroad in the Southwest because of these railroads.

 

*To log this cache, you must use the date on the marker as the password.  Also, post a picture of you or your GPS in front of the building.*

We had just finished a great day at the Sherwood Forest Renaissance Faire and stopped here to make this find.  We saw a nearby restaurant that we want to coome back to visit sometime, and perhaps visit the museum as well.  Thanks for bringing us here!

I came by here to get the other cache that is crazy close to this one. But, since it is listed on another web site and this is virtual and that one is not, I guess that is ok. The museum was not open when I was there so I could not see the displays about the history of Elgin, I am sure it would be interesting.

Since my phone is my GPSr and my camera it is hard for it to take a picture of itself, so all you get is a picture of me in front of the depot.

I don't exactly remember when I was there but I do remember it was on the way to an event in Manor... I also love these little jewels.. I don't have a picture of myself in front of it.. just a picture of the marker itself.. Don't want to post that!!  Thanks,,
