#1: Looking past the confluence to the east.

(visited by Gary McDuffie Sr.)

19-Jan-2000 - It's a pretty easy and boring site. I knew this going into it, as it is only about 300 feet off of a good road, in the middle of a field.

I had checked it out pretty closely using Topo USA, so didn't even take a map with me. After finding it with the GPS, I started doing some position averaging to more closely zero in on it. After a few tries, I was within an "estimated accuracy" range of 30 feet.

Since I was alone, I set the GPS on the ground and took pictures looking north, east, west, and south across the confluence in about a 15 foot radius. That is, I stood 15 feet east and shot a picture looking West, moved to the next, etc.

Nothing spectacular in the pictures. The views west and south are obscured close-in by an elevated railroad track. As luck would have it, I just missed a train that would have added a little variety to the shots.
