Grasscatcher Posted December 26, 2013 Share Posted December 26, 2013 I live near Colorado Natl Monument and decided to do a little project of finding the six BM located in the park. I found all the BM and all the reference marks (except two that I haven't been back for the second time). The second trip to some to locate the ref marks really should have been unnecessary except for the goofy location descriptions. The question is, why are the descriptions given that way? One of the finds was easy but some require up to seven mile round trip hikes. Naturally, the easy one was the one with no Ref marks. Been there, done that, so it's all in the past , just wondering "why" on the "official" descriptions. BM are: KMO442-CONE- KMO443-E BLACK RIDGE- KMO444-FRUITA- KMO454-RED- KMO455-RIM- KMO456-COLD SHIVERS PT- No Ref marks Note that all are described as "set(however) XX dist" FROM the station, but then the bearing given is only correct if taken "FROM" the RM TO the Station, so it's the reciprocal.
