Joes Hill was plan B.
A road to Plan A had a 'pond' in the middle of it, and the bypass around the pond was 18 inches of wet mud, with signs of one or more vehicles being pulled out of the mud. No thanks.

Actually, I did Joes Hill, and then another little hike on the way out of Perry Mesa, near Bishop Creek.
After those treks, I did an even shorter hike on the other side of I-17, to locate Joe Benchmark's azimuth disk.
If you can follow my photos - Congratulations.

Joes Hill:
Formed a zillion years ago, and is considered an example of a 'shield volcano'. (Look it up).
Basically, that's how the various mesas formed also.
Joes Hill is actually located on Hansenaz's Mesa - Some call it Perry Mesa.
But since Hansenaz has spent as much time up there as William Perry did, he should have equal billing. - :)

Joes Hill has a benchmark at its top, named "JOE". It was set by the NGS, in 1958. The year it was set intrigued me, as 1958 seemed much later than I expected.

Well, I discovered another 'benchmark' up there, (and its two reference marks), that I'm sure pre-dates Joe BM. It's a USGS BM, which means I'll have to email to get data on it. (No info online).

I started out from Perry Windmill, went to the 'Hill', located stuff, then wandered back to the windmill.
My arbitrary wander back, had me almost walk right into 'another disk' - This one was sitting on a pipe. I swear, these things are starting to locate Me.

Although my intent was just to locate disks, Perry Mesa is so rich in "Art and Kitchen Utensils", It's hard not to wander into them.

I'm glad I was forced to do my Plan B (and C), as the day turned out to be alot of fun.
Plan A can wait for dryer conditions.
