#1: Looking north at the confluence from the south

(visited by Robert Collier, Nolan Hardwick and Betty Hardwick)

09-Mar-2001 -- We traveled east from Horbart, Ok. on Rt 9 which becomes road 1380 after you cross US 183. Some people of Hobart call this road Ozark Trail. We went 3 miles past US 183 and turned south onto Road 2230. We traveled on this road for one mile and found the confluence 35N 99W on the right side of the road off about 150 yards.

Since this has been a time of much rain the road was very muddy and it became a challange to navigate the road. I might say here that I have a GPS unit so we were able to tell where we were all of the time.

When we found the confluence we found that it was either very near a pond or was in the pond. The path down to the pond was easy since it looked like there had been visits to the pond on a regular basis. We found out fron the local farmers that this pond is a state owned flood control pond.

We arrived at the edge of the pond and got out to walk to the actual confluence. We found that that location was actually out in the water about 25 yards. So, on with the hip boots and I waded in knee deep water to the actual point. As a coincidence there is a tree trunk sticking out of the water at the point of confluence. You will be able to see the post in the pictures. At the time while I was standing at the confluence the GPS was indicating that the averaging was 14 feet, so I believe we found it (35N - 99W).

We made a point to take a picture from north, east west and south looking to the confluence (pole) in the water. We did not get one from the east side looking west because it was too muddy to walk to that point. The best picture is from the south looking north. If you look closely you can see the post just above the water level, that is the actual location, per my GPS.

You can see the outlines of the path from Road 2230 to the pond if you go to the Terraserver web site and get an aerial shot of that latitude and longitude (see the link to the left).

Since my father-in-law lives in Hobart he can get back to the site very easily. We are told that in the summer this pond is drained and the bottom becomes dry.
