  • My report to USGS

After finding Tanners' Condos and chiseled square 1102.46 nearby, we left the gamelands at Tanners Falls and traveled north along Upper Woods Road to approach the coordinates I'd approximated from the map for this mark. We were pleased to find a convenient SGL parking area directly adjacent to the mark! Once we stepped into the woods the location of the mark was immediately apparent. The trees surrounding the boulder were blazed with pink paint and/or encircled with pink flagging tape. The disk required some cleaning, but was otherwise in fine condition. The stamping is light, but legible. All measurements match those in the description. We did not search for the reference mark at this time.
