#1: View from the confluence

(visited by Chad Hahn)

06-Oct-2001 -- Out in the absolute middle of nowhere beyond swamps and over, under and through multiple fences is a muddy rut in the middle of a hay field that goes across the confluence of 42N and 99W.

There are surely better ways to get there than the long and arduous path I took. Along the way I crossed a wide gravel driveway that would have taken me a mile or so closer and leaving the site I saw two hunters who might have parked even closer still. There were many cows, alive and dead. Three white tail deer and numerous prairie chicken. The way to the site took me over more hills than I thought were in Nebraska and the way back (across the valleys) took me through more swamps than I have seen outside of Alabama.

The round trip of 6 miles, as the crow flies, took me around four hours. No wonder no one has visited this site before.
