16. What is the latitude for the southeast corner of the map?
17. What is the straight line distance between the 8996 ft and the 7202 ft benchmarks located north and northwest of Phelps Lake? ( The benchmarks have an “x” to locate the spot where the elevation was surveyed).
Hint: Measure the distance between the 2 benchmarks and then use the 3 scales given below to find out the distance
18. Which of the following lakes has a shoreline that is most likely at an elevation between 10,240 and 10,320 feet above sea level? a. Kit Lake b. Timberline Lake c. Sunset Lake d. Surprise Lake Hint: I have brought all the 4 lakes in the diagrams below and highlighted the index contours. Now you highlight the contours the contain the contours 10,240 and 10, 320.
