Quad: Old Rag Mountain
Location: N 38°37.357' W 078°19.382'
Elevation: 3326 ft.
Designation: 120 MLS 1963
Type: Bench Mark Disk
Established By: USGS
Recovered: 1 October 2006
This disk can be found in the same boulder that once held THORO ERDL AZ MK 1 (described in HW3272). All that remains of that mark is a drill hole, but 120 MLS was our bonus when we went to the Pinnacles Overlook to search for the azimuth mark.
