#1: The Confluence from 10 m Distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

29-May-2022 -- This is the first out of 3 confluence visits during a one-week trip to the USA.

Our main purpose for this trip was to attend our nephew’s wedding in Maryland. The day after the wedding we drove from Baltimore to Philadelphia for a visit of the Barnes Foundation. On our way, we made a little deviation across the big Bay Bridge to visit this confluence point.

The confluence is just 5 km off the main highway 301 on a little county road named “Little Eagle Road”, where we parked in 180 m distance from the confluence point. Walking was conveniently possible between two fields.

This confluence is located in a wild meadow. Peaceful spot. Just a little too hot to stay there for longer. I measured a hight of -39 m with my GPS receiver, which is obviously wrong by at least 50 m.

After the visit, we drove to Philadelphia to see the attractions of the city.

From Annapolis, MD, take US-50 east to exit 46 (across the William Preston Lane Jr Memorial Bridge). Take US-301 east for 8.5 miles, and take a right onto SR-304 east (away from Centreville). Go 1.4 miles and turn right onto an unnamed road. Go 1.24 miles until the road ends in a T at Little Eagle Rd. To get to the confluence, turn left and walk 280 feet on Little Eagle Rd. Then, leave the road and walk due south 800 feet (remember to adjust if you're using a magnetic compass). Another way to get to the confluence would be to go 1.26 miles past the unnamed road on SR 304, and turn right onto Greenville Rd. Go 0.73 miles and turn right onto Little Eagle Rd. The best way to determine the confluence point is still to walk from the intersection of the unnamed road and Little Eagle Rd.
