International Boundary Monument Visit
July 6, 2011

We've been very busy. This photo was taken on a trip to view a monument placed around 1903 on the International Boundary. I had observed this site from a distance some years ago during benchmark recovery. The alpine meadow looked so inviting through the binoculars, it deserved a closer examination.

The monument is the 3 part bronze with an interior turnbuckle, & all packed to the site by horse. It is in very good condition, one of the best I've examined.

The hike was beautiful and without difficulty until reaching the north facing slopes which were covered with steep cornices and drifts.

Note: I have decided to redact monument numbers for security reasons.
