I agree with previous entry by Azcachemeister (02/04/07).
The Cairn (DV1910) is gone.

However, the actual Saddle Mountain Triangulation Station (DV1911) and both RMs are there in good shape.

Recovered in good condition.

There is no longer a cairn on the summit. The previous log is obviously in error, as the photo is of the Saddle Mountain disk, DV1911.

The year this benchmarked was placed I was six years old.

The disk is in good shape. The cairn and log book are there ok also.

And the two disks to the north and south are ok.

Nice day for a walk. Warm and sunny the whole time except for a bit of a chill in the shadow below the cliffs. The view to the west was a little scary over the edge.

The altitude on my GPS was wandering around. 3070 +/- 30 feet I couldn't feel the mountain moving at all. N33d26.385m, W113d02.415m
