Forest Service Monument
Found this Forest Service monument while on a deer hunt in Catron County, New Mexico northwest of Alma. It is at the top of Indian Peak and doesn’t show up on the NGS data sheets. The wilderness boundary for the Blue Range Wilderness has an angle point on the top of this mountain.
The Pueblo designation probably came from Pueblo Creek which is situate a mile or two east. There were two rolls of rusted smooth wire lying on the rock mound, and the old anchor wires were still in place tied into rocks. About 15 feet southwest was an old cedar crag that had been trimmed back probably for line of sight.
Has anyone seen other Forest Service monuments like this?
