Kick In the *Ss, to the top, and in the snow. Found it, I have't been up here for probably 25 years. I picked a day in June and this was it,,,I lost the trail at around 1.3 miles from the Benchmark,, exactly where the trail gets to Judd Creek but proceeded to venture on, there was an average of 5 feet of snow still on the ground,,,guessing here there could have been 4 and a half and could have been 10,, who knows I never measured it with a tape.. Just judge for your self by the photos,,,of course there was none on the top of the mountian,,,,,,dah. I would'nt have located the Benchmark.

Here is a view from the Backyard
I took this one the morning I left for the Benchmark from the Backyard. I did not know what was waiting for me up there,,,but was soon to find out.
Looking eye to eye
I was standing on the bare ground that was melted under a patch of trees and Geobud's standing on the snow. This was one of the resting spots that we could find to sit down that was'nt in the snow.
Here is a better photo of the brass plug
