#1: The cotton field containing 34N/102W.

(visited by Ed Vinson and Sonya Vinson)

07-Jan-2001 -- We succeeded at the one due east of here, so we thought, "Why Not?" MUD was why not. 34N/102W is nearly in the small community of Cotton Center, north of Lubbock in the Llano Estacado of Texas. The actual spot is to the right of the "modules" of cotton in the picture; these are about the size of a semitrailer and seem to be the modern version of a ten foot long sack dragged down the row.

A good snow earlier in the week was just finishing melting the day we visited. The field was sticky mud, and 500 yards of it would be too much for a weenie like me to attempt in tennis shoes. So this confluence will have to wait for a drier day.
