Was looking for cache horse feathers and came across this and 2 others. R 1, dv116 and dv118. Went back 2 years later to get a photo which I didn't get the first time.

As many before us, we found this while searching for the horse feathers cache. Didn't carry a camera, I barely had enough stamina to carry MYSELF through that hike!

Like many others prior to me, stumbled upon this while looking for Horse Feathers geocache. Actually, my son Ben, found the station disk as well as both RM's. No photo's this time around as I didn't have my camera with me.

This one is very beat up but can just be identified. It is in the worse shape of the three up here.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 1993. No horizontal observational check was made to the station.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
