At one pulloff north of Cottonwood Spring, we noticed a neat rock ledge with what looked like the bottom few inches of a signpost embedded in it. My first thought, of course, was "witness post," although I didn't see a survey mark immediately nearby. But a moment later I turned around and, in a small depression in the rock, I spotted one! So cool! It's always exciting when we find a mark serendipitously. The disk is in very good condition and the witness post, as mentioned, has been sheared off but the remaining piece of the signpost is still evident and easy to spot.
A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:
Recovered in good condition. The stub of the witness post is still evident, as noted in the 2004 recovery.
