Whilst walking up Mt Taylor this morning I noticed that the trig point at the summit had been removed. It was a professional job, the legs had been sawn through cleanly at the base leaving only four concrete blocks.
I thought it might have been removed by TAMS because the original trig point on the mountain was replaced in the late 1970s by the one that was there up till now. Maybe a new model was on its way, so I thought.
During the time I was there three men came up and one said that the trig had been removed by vandals. If so, why? It isn’t valuable and what would you use it for? Where would you keep it? You couldn’t put it in your garden as someone would see it and immediately know it was stolen and notify the authorities.
So does anybody in the RA community know what happened to the Mt Taylor trig? Are there any plans for it to be replaced or will the summit remain unmarked?
