Two of the attractions on today's journey from Oak Creek to Kayenta were Wupatki and Sunset Crater. While driving on the Sunset Crater-Wupatki Loop Road, we noticed several survey mark witness posts! Although we passed at least five, we only stopped to look for two benchmarks. This was the second one: 22 BKC. It's unlike many of the others we've found, this mark is a disk on a rod set inside a steel pipe. Condition is very good.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
