Georeference RemarksUsing GeoLocate with confirmation from Google Maps, I was able to locate Coyote Mountain Range. The Coyote Mountains span San Diego and Imperial Counties. Crest Coyote mountains is possible referring to the tallest crest of the mountain range. Could not find information about this or the Marble Works, so placed marker in center of range and georeferenced entire range.
