|Comment: The original lat/long N-47-35-37 W-121-4-5 (47.5936 -121.0681) plots in Chelan county. However, the record's political location is Kittitas county. The PLSS coords are 22N 14E S3. The lat/long falls at 24N 14E S3. The site name Cle Elum River Area indicates a river name which lies completely within Kittitas county. So the evidence indicates the reporter mistyped the minutes. The latitude was changed by 10 minutes from 47 35 37 to 47 25 37 and the UTM was cleared.|
