29-Jul-2003 -- While in upstate New York, visiting my parents, I decided to visit some of the area confluences. This confluence is about 25 miles away from where my parents live. My mother came along with me. We drove up route 30 to Amsterdam and then took route 67 west to the confluence. The confluence is about a mile north of 67. As we drove down Crane road, we saw the pond that is just west of the confluence. Like the last visitor, we drove to the house on whose property we assumed the confluence is located. We rang the door bell, but no one was home. We got back into the car and parked along Crane road. Following the GPS, we headed toward the pond. We saw the smiley face that was photographed by last visitor. My guess is that the owner put this up to welcome other confluence visitors. We walked a few hundred feet up a path alone the pond until we got to the confluence. The exact point is between the pond and the path, about 5 to 6 feet from the edge of the pond. I got to the exact point, all zeros on the GPS, took pictures in all four compass directions and then we left.
