#1: Looking northeast at a large rock

(visited by Alex Jarrett, Andrea Jarrett and Mary Jane Jarrett)

20-Dec-1999 -- It's been a long time since I've actually visited a confluence. Most of my confluence time is spent on other people's confluence. But I knew I needed to get back to my roots.

On our way from Massachusetts to Indiana, my family stopped by the side of the road about 1500 feet from a confluence. It was raining, and the only GPS I had was connected to a laptop, so we had to use a compass and the length of my stride.

My mother (Mary Jane) and my youngest sister (Andrea) were partners in the quest. The woods were grey, wet and rainy. We slipped and tripped on and over leaves and branches and vines, making our way up a hillside to the spot.
