We spent from Wednesday-Sunday at Superstition Mt. OHV Area. It is kind of a tradition in our family. My parents came as well. I did get to try out my new (to me) dual sport motorcycle, with the hope of getting to use it this winter to explore ABDSP. Caveat was that the wife gets one too.
Anyway during the trip we were out exploring and discovered a marker. I took a pic with my dads flip phone, but he doesn't know how to send it to me yet. The marker did not seem to be the usual benchmark, it was about the same size and material but had a cross on it with #s (12,13, 7, 18) we surmised related to the corner of 4 quads there were tons of other #s on it as well. I checked caltopo and the #s matched nicely to the quads.
Also tried to look up info via http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/ds_quads.prl but just got more confused with the plethora of info.smile

Is it just a reference mark? What do you think. My kid is taking a bunch of engineering classes and surveying was one he just finished. We were guessing at a lot of possibilities.
Anyone know what the marker might be for? or what "kind" of marker it is to help with info retrieval?

Marker is at the "?" in the middle of nowhere and flush with the ground like it was hammered in. $250 for
removing it.


Thanks

For the last handful of years it has been with my oldest son in Death Valley and recently in ABDSP. This year though it was with the family and then a 3 day backpack trip afterwards (TR coming soon).

@DRT Lakeside:
Is the wife/dual sport caveat so bad..?? I don't know what your marker is but at $250 it can't be too important....did it have a date on it?

The wife with a motorcycle is actually awesome! The hard part is finding one that fits her and still has enough in the power and looks dept. to make her happy. Cheap is nice too. She will also need to get the M1 designation on her license as she does not have that yet. I picture us towing the bikes down to a base camp and then exploring and maybe an overnight. She is not a big fan of sleeping on the ground anymore but I am hoping...

As far as the marker goes, I don't remember seeing a date, but there were a lot of numbers on it. I will try to check the picture on my dad's phone, hopefully it turned out. I think you are right, about the $ fine, it is either old or not very important. I noticed that on the NGS site a lot of the markers were "active" i.e. Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) -provide reference data to GPS. Ever see one of those, or are they likely on military/secure land?
