Note added by Jim
Important--- This past weekend 8/8/09, I noticed a typo on the Mary D 2 map. The GPS coordinates for the South West Corner of Mary D 2 should read North 42 Degrees 27.312 Minutes West 108 degrees 35.991 Minutes instead of (North 42 Degrees 27.312 Minutes West 108 degrees 36.991 Minutes) as is on the maps that I have sent out. If this typo has caused you any problem please let me know so I may try to fix the problem. I have posted a new map on the web site so it may be downloaded or contact me and I can try to get a new copy to you some way.
Sorry for the inconvenience
