(visited by Ross Finlayson)

08-Aug-2022 -- I couldn’t drive eastwards from the Pittsburgh area without visiting this very easy Degree Confluence Point, which lies in a field, just 65 feet North of a paved road. The field was overgrown, but the long grass around the point was trampled down, which made it clear that - despite the last recorded visit to this point being in 2011 - several other people have visited this point recently.

Afterwards, I visited the scenic Glessner Covered Bridge, and then the somber Flight 93 National Memorial - both located just a few miles from this point.

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
