09-Aug-2003 -- Back in August this Texan had the occasion to visit Illinois and Iowa. Figuring I could hit some confluences, I identified three that looked promising. The first one was 41N 90W. Corn and soybean fields abound in this region of the country and 41N 90W was no different. Driving down route 180 and then the gravel road Knox road 1950 (picture #4) took me within 200 meters or so of the confluence. After walking north a little past a ramshackle barn (picture #3) I came to a field thick with soybean. Not wanting to push my way through I went no further, leaving me about 100 meters south of the confluence. Picture #1 is the view looking north. I believe the stump near the center of the picture is the same as the previous visitor noted. Picture #2 is the view east, #3 is the view west, and #4 is the road that took me to the confluence.
