Southwest Corner of Wyoming
A.V. Richards, U.S. astronomer and surveyor, established this corner monument November 14, 1873, at intersection of the forty-first parallel of north latitude with the thirty-fourth degree of west longitude (West of Washington, D.C.). Federal, state and local organizations coordinated preservation of the monument in 1996.
Several of my favorite things, a state corner (Utah/Idaho/Wyoming), a benchmark, and a coordinate confluence (a couple miles east, where the corner was “supposed” to be.
It was a bumpy Jeep ride to the corner, and a gorgeous day out there. It was really easy to find the way from the Highway in Wyoming.
