#1: Looking east from the confluence

(visited by Rick Smeltzer and Anna Smeltzer)

25-May-2000 -- It's Memorial Day Weekend and corn planting time in Indiana. This confluence, 41 north 86 west is located near the town of Akron, in the heart of north central Indiana's corn country. We located Leon Schipper and received permission to photograph the confluence. The Schippers farm about 286 acres in Fulton County. This is the first confluence we have photographed with the SA turned off. The GPS sure has settled down and is very accurate.

Photograph one, two and three is looking east, south and west respectively from the confluence.

Picture #4 is a Canadian visitor. This rock and others probably made its way from Canada with the help of a glacier. Picture #5 is the obligatory GPS receiver among the new corn.
