Benchmarks on top of Pinnacle Mt
I tried to find the BM disk WAU, and the Maumelle reset Triangulation station. I thought it was strange that no one had logged these since I know there have been a few cachers who have climbed the mt.
I searched for WAU (Somewhere close to the park entrance on the west side) for about 15 minutes with no luck. I thought for sure I would score with the maumelle reset. After a gruelling hour long hike in the 90* heat, I finally made it to the summit w/ both Squirrel21309 and Lil angel in tow.
I looked for the obvious disks but no such luck, then I started noticing some irregularities in the rocks. You tell me if I am right in thinking these are the locations that at one time held the triangulation station, and BM diks. See Log
After reading the official notes when I returned I noticed that they've had to replace these BM almost ever time they recovered them. My theory is that some tourist thought that these disks woukd make a nice souvenier from the mt. Just a theory based on the high muggle traffic in the area.
If the marks have been plundered, how do we go about getting them replaced? Aby thoughts?
