it's not the Pines, but I just had to post this to show Teagate easy stone hunting out west. Picture of my granddaughter Kat on a trek with her mom, Ann, at Black Mesa, OK (highest point). Stone marks junction NM, OK, and Co - but has 4 sides, 2 for Co. Why not triangular???

imkms: Good question - I'll see if Kat or Ann noticed that.
PBX: Rotate that diamond on your diagram 180 degrees and I think it would work fine.

I was about to say what Johnny just said.Put the bottom of the traingle up top to simulatae the Colorado line and NM and OK would be the other two sides with the downward facing apex representing the state line between the two.

My daughter Ann says Colorado is written on two sides; she, too, wondered why it's not triangular. Maybe Colorado paid for it? or they have largest chunk of adjoining territory? or they were 1st to put the stone in?

Johnny, help me out. The stone is 4-sided, and 2 sides show Colorado. How exactly is the stone placed in relationship to the border; the junction of 2 lines--one perpendicular to the other.

Bob, I've no idea how "they" situated the stone. For that matter, one could wonder how accurate the survey was done and when. Let me tell you one time about "where is Bermuda?" - a true story of location something on the earth's surface. From my days helping build the most precise (and accurate if set up correctly) radars in the world. It always interests me when someone says something is located son-and-so.

Could make it a hexagon.... didn't think of just turning it like JohnnyB!

But that's my mechanical engineering background (college), if it isn't a complicated solution, it's not worth it. :D
