Since I was traveling from California to Utah alone today, I decided to add a number of hours to the trip and visit the dam. I enjoyed it and I was able to find a few geocaches and benchmarks along the way.

After visiting the dam, I made the long trek to Provo. This was near the end of my trip and pretty late. Thankfully, I found this easily and in good shape.

We bank at this bank and have never noticed it.

second benchmark

Finding a benchmark is like finding a bit of history, Just wish they could all be as easy as this one.

Still there in great shape. Found without the benefit of GPS; the description and previously posted pics were information enough.

I've walked by this a million times. Had my camera/phone but it was at night and didn't have a flash. I've never logged a benchmark before, so this is new to me.

N 37° 40.695 W 113° 03.715

Bench Mark H 30 was recovered in good condition. It was as described with the following correction: The bank is now the Wells Fargo Bank. Additionally, this is on the southwest corner of the intersection of North Main Street and Harding Avenue.

A slightly different placement for a survey disk than I've seen. Loved it.

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.
