MORC fix for the year

Recommended Posts

Finally had another excuse for a long, hot, dusty drive into the Missouri Breaks.

 

MORC BM 62-2 1885

Should have checked on it three years ago when I could have paddled right to it instead of crashing through the 1/4 mile from today's nearest kayak landing. Or waited for a month until the bugling Wapiti come off the CMR NWR ridges and beat out some trails to the river. MEL

Mike do you have a photo looking at the bank with the stone exposed? Nice work, as always. I'm glad to see you are still at it.

Kurt & all,

 

The stone was not & is not exposed in the sloping bank. The pipe tipped out (or was pushed) leaving a 0.60 ft deep hole that was filled in by soft dirt trickling in. I dug down through this to expose the stone and copper center bolt, then filled it back in after taking photos.

The Bench Mark should be good for another 100 years of regular erosion if the reservoir does not go to emergency flood pool elevation again.

prior to meeting my kayak camping partner at Coal Banks Landing about 50 miles up river.

 

1889 'To Find' does need to be updated with the edge of a cultivated pasture just 4.5 Smoots away.
