VAH KI was our next find. This was extremely easy to spot and in fact Rich spotted it from the road. All three marks were in a line and just a few meters apart along a fence line. While we were taking our photos a man came zooming toward us on an ATV. Unlike what we might expect at home, though, he slowed down and waved pleasantly as he passed (also of note, he didn't harass us about what we were doing, just left us alone).

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

The station and both reference marks were recovered in good condition. All marks are set in round concrete monuments. The witness post and sign are still in place. The highway is now Arizona State Route 79.
