BCP528 Picture Butte
N49° 52.886’ W112° 47.308’
After Warner we drove NW on Hwy 4 to Hwy 845 then north through Coaldale to Hwy 519 where we turned west and headed to Picture Butte. That was a nice drive, especially north of Coaldale where the road crossed the Oldman River, a crossing we haven’t used before. In Picture Butte we navigated to spot in a back lane that had us within 50 meters of the cap. Now I actually had to use the compass to locate the cap as it was buried under an inch or so of loose dirt. I mean it was still easy, but I like using the compass occasionally. I have often wondered what makes Survey Control Markers so interesting, I think it is something to do with the way they tie things together, sort of pins them down or in other words, brings a little order to the chaos and I like that.
Thanks for posting all these survey markers ofth, we had a wonderful day!
