I stood proudly looking down from Ensign Peak in Salt Lake City, UT, on August 11, 2012.  One could not help but see that a view from where famous Pioneer Leaders of the LDS faith nearly 165 years before had used as a planning platform for the city that would come to be known as Salt Lake would enable the planning and estimation steps needed.  I sat back on a rock admiring the view near a poignant and interesting marker marking the historic spot where the survey and landscaping mapping was…
