Are there any good resources for finding these? Some maps have them, have them on the wrong locations. I didnt know about these until reading the posts on this forum about them. So far I've walked over the INKO and MOAN BM's. And were close to others. I figure if I'm in the area why not and try and bag a few.

Caltopo with the MapBuilder layer will also have them and have been accurate for me until PAH.

Yes I'll use that as a source also. Just double check the gps. If theres 2 location check both if possible.

Peakbaggers.com has BMs. They list BM PAH at the incorrect location and three people report bagging it but none actually leave a trip report.

John Strauch, the first entry at peakbagger is the first entry on the register and the date matches...but the map is wrong.

Though not a BM I found this near the Turbine that collapsed south of 8. I didn't have the gps so no exact location.

Guessing this is probably the exact location.

Question, Why would it be 1/4 S on S33? Caltopo survey map.

I'm interpreting that marker to mean it's a quarter of the way along a boundary of Section 1. Assuming it's that particular S1 since you said it was near the downer turbine and that section also has a junction approximately 1/4 the way west of one of its corners.

Here's a nice blurb on Township and Range stuff: https://nationalmap.gov/small_scale/a_plss.html

I find the topics of surveying and geodetics fascinating on a superficial level but overwhelming past the basics.

I was wondering why a 1/4 section was marked. So I dug into some old maps. Didn't find the reason yet but found this cool map from 1910 of Western Imperial County. Its a bit large.
