#1: Point closest to the confluence

(visited by Rick Smeltzer)

23-Jul-2000 -- This confluence, 39 north 85 west is located in southeast Indiana near the town of Dillsboro in Dearborn County. The landowner allowed me to photograph the confluence. The actual confluence is about 5 feet out into a pond. The topography here is steep from the upland to the Ohio River valley. This confluence is also located near Friendship, Indiana home of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association National Fall Shoot.

This annual event pays homage to the old-time art of muzzleloading and the pioneer spirit. The Shoot started in 1933 with an argument about the accuracy of the old guns that were used to forge early America. The guns made a good showing, and today, 1,500 shooters and up to 2,000 spectators enjoy the competition. Also, Friendship is known for its flea markets and swapmeets.

Photograph one is of the closest point to the confluence, located about 5 feet out into the pond. Photograph two is from the other side of the pond looking at the confluence. Photographs three and four are looking west and southeast respectively from the confluence. Picture 5 is the obligatory GPS receiver closest to the confluence near the edge of the pond.
