#1: In the middle of a sprinkler irrigated corn field

(visited by Xavier Farre)

15-Mar-2003 -- On March 15th, 2003 my wife Silvia and I went from Raimat where we live to try to find the confluence between the Greenwich meridian and the 42ºN latitude. It is close to home (50 km from Raimat).

It is the only confluence unvisited in Aragón.

It is in the middle of a sprinkler irrigated field of corn. Altitude is approx. 365 m. Although it is a beautiful place there is not much to photograph there. It was already harvested and cultivated. It is surrounded by corn and barley fields, there is also a vineyard nearby.

To get there we crossed La Perdiguera, a small village through its main street, got into a road in the same direction (N) and when we crossed a channel, took an unpaved road trying to go north. The road ends and you have to walk 1 km crossing one vineyard, 2 small channels and several barley and corn fields.
