Saw a tree trunk in distance that looked like a bear.

Good condition still, a little scared from the gunshots were hearing, sounded like a shotgun. I guess it is because it is hunting season.

Recovered in good condition as described. NGS description is adequate and all references are still intact. . . . patrick & shirley

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.
