This was the second mark we found on our travels along Puerto Blanco Drive, headed west toward Quitobaquito Spring. The monument was easy to spot from the road, and it and the disk are in excellent condition. Part of a wooden post set in concrete—presumably a witness post—is just a few feet away. This mark is very close to the Mexican border, and the border fences and Mexican Highway 2 are easily visible from the site.
