Geo 1095: May 3, Day 853: Benchmarking With Dana

When I shot with film, each shot ended up costing about a dollar, so each photo was fairly carefully considered as to its value, utility and quality before I snapped the shutter. There are some downsides to digital, but they're all outweighed by the fact that after the initial investment, all the photos are essentially free. So while I took only a couple of film photos of benchmarks, now I'll snap a shot of any that I spot. Here's the McKenzie Pass benchmark, with Dana for scale, and Dee Wright Volcano Observatory in the background. The survey marker is that rusty looking dot near the lower middle, just to the right of Dana's left foot.
