Found this one while doing the nearby Virtual.
Loved the fantastic views from here.

On vacation with ThePostalAnt and ironlegs69, traveling through the southwest seeing things we haven't seen before. Goulding's Trading Post and Museum was definitely a new spot for me, glad to find this benchmark.

Found this along with ThePostalAnt and Cluttergirl.

Stopped by to find the virtual cache and found so much more. Nice museum, great conversation of lady at the front desk and this benchmark. Ironlegs69 spotted it. It's in very good shape.

We were walking around the Lodge when I looked down and saw this little fellow. I like it when you stumble across something unexpected. Mark is in fine shape.

We were at the Trading Post and we found the benchmark. Did not realize it at the time that there is also a virtual cache nearby. Awesome! 8D

Found this BM while locating GCHHXG - Harry & Mike's cache. It's on the front porch and in great shape.

Found this one by surprise while on a spring break driving trip from Mesa AZ to Monument Valley, on to Vail, then to Durango, then to Canyon De Chelly. This is still in good shape!

Documented History (by the NGS)

1/1/1962 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1962 IN GOULDING TR. POST. AT GOULDINGS TRADING POST IN UTAH, 7.0 FEET NORTH-NORTHEAST OF THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE TRADING POST OFFICE AND STORE, AND SET IN THE TOP OF THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE CONCRETE PORCH OF THE TRADING POST.
1/1/1983 by NGS (GOOD)
RECOVERY NOTE BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1983 RECOVERED IN GOOD CONDITION, NOT LEVELED DURING THIS SURVEY.

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.
