2000 California Center of Population Marker

Recommended Posts

On our way home from the Mojave Desert last week, some friends and I stopped at a Caltrans rest stop near Buttonwillow to find the 2000 California Center of Population marker. The actual COP that year was a few miles northeast of the rest stop in someone's field. Presumably this location was chosen for the marker because of easy public access.

 

Incorrect coordinates were posted for the mark in this forum a couple of years ago; those coords put it on the wrong (northbound) side of I-5. The actual coordinates, in geocaching format, are:

 

N 35° 25.056 W 119° 25.466

 

I'm attaching some photos of the disk and its environment.

I looked over @ Waymarking & nobody's posted this one in the US Benchmarks category, if you're inclined to post there..

Oh, thanks Ernmark, I'll think about that. If anyone else here has visited the station and wants to turn it into a waymark, they're welcome to do so.
