  • My report to USGS

This horizontal control station is conveniently located along the trail to On the Roost, so even though Aaron was with us, there was simply no way Rich and I could resist recovering this mark. Fortunately, it didn't take long! The mark is in excellent condition and right out in the open along a field road as described, the only difference being that the fence just north of the mark has been removed. This mark is located just outside the boundary of SGL #119.
