700 Waymarks Posted, 276 Waymarks Visited

700 Waymarks! Since June, the last post, I had a brief lull while I moved in, then continued at a fast rate. A good quarter of the waymarks came from my trip to Portland, Maine. I posted in: Massachusetts – Boston, Natick, Norwood, Stoughton, Hull, and Dedham, plus Norfolk County; Rhode Island – Warren; New Hampshire – Bartlett; Maine – Portland, Old Orchard Beach; Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh; Ontario (Canada) – Toronto; British Columbia (Canada) – Port Coquitlam and West Vancouver; and Manitoba (Canada) – Winnipeg. New states/provinces that I have posted waymarks include: Maine (completing the New England states), Ontario, and Manitoba.

Here’s the breakdown: Waymarks logged: 700 Waymarks visited: 275 Waymarks have been placed in all 15 “Divisions” (The last, Animals, in Dec. 07) Different Categories Posted: 247 Number of states/provinces/regions with Waymarks logged/visited: 11 states (U.S.), 3 province (Canada).

States Where Waymarks were Posted

States Where Waymarks were Posted


Officer of four Categories: Massachusetts Historical Markers, Rhode Island Historical Markers, Vermont Historical Markers, and Engineering Landmarks.

154 of my waymarks are posted in Massachusetts Historical Markers, which is still the most, but is now less than 1/4 of the total waymarks. The next category with the highest waymarks posted is U.S. Benchmarks, with 25 waymarks. Rounding the top 6 is U.S. Register of Historic Places (20), Masonic Temples (14), Municipal Parks and Plazas (11), and Dated Buildings and Cornerstones (11). The only change in order is that Dated Buildings and Cornerstones replaced This Old Church.

The colors are turning in the Boston area. Wetlands have some color, while the uplands are showing color on branches and tops. The peaks colors are in the mountains.
