This benchmark is now hiding underneath an overgrown Palo Verde tree. I had an interesting time exposing the mark for photos.
Those trees will scratch you if you let them.

Take note of the GPS window. You can see the reflection of that Palo Verde Tree. HA ! This benchmark has "double duty". It's also STEVE TRI MARK'S AZIMUTH MARK.

Found in good shape.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
