The Brunton Axis Pocket Transit Compass is an innovative compass invented by geologists for easier measurements of planes, lines, bearings, and vertical angles. The dual-axis, hollow hinge facilitates quick, accurate measurements without requiring multiple read-outs or different measurement tools. Only one measurement configuration is required for strike and dip, trend and plunge, as well as bearing and vertical angle. North runs parallel to the main hinge axis, making this compass the only Brunton Transit capable of measuring strike and dip simultaneously. There's a lid protractor and rotation around the minor axis for accurate measurements of trend and plunge across any surface, even on overhangs. Adjustable declination allows you to use this across North America without sacrificing accuracy. It's available in either a 0 to 360 azimuth scale or 0 to 90 quadrants.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
