(visited by Ross Finlayson)

16-May-2018 -- My final Degree Confluence Point of the day was this spectacular point on the northern bank of the Ohio River, where it forms Indiana's boundary with Kentucky. The point itself lies just in the river; standing on the river bank, I was able to get 79 feet (+/- GPS error of 11 feet) away.

I agree with the previous visitor (Joseph Kerski in June 2016) that this is an especially beautiful point; among the best in the U.S. I had been hoping to send up a drone to get aerial views of the point, but unfortunately light rain was falling at the time.
