30-Oct-2016 -- Back in the USA in 2016. As usual during October I made the trip to attend the ASA annual meeting which was held in Chicago. After these work days and after celebrating the success of our presentation, we spent a week of vacation in Virginia to visit Washington DC and Shenandoah National park. This was a perfect occasion to visit 38N 79W during a nice and sunny afternoon immediately after we made a very interesting visit at President Jefferson’s house in Monticello which is only 45 km beeline from the point.
38N 79W is located in what is now a private property in the backyard on the north side of a newly constructed house. The successive visits to the point have shown the progressive shift of the area from country landscape to suburban residential urban "sprawl". It seems however that the development of urbanization has come to a temporary pause as the second phase of the commercial process looks currently abandoned. The immediate vicinity of the CP looks unchanged since the visit by Ross Finlayson in 2011.
There is no difficulty to approach the point but in order to stay beyond private land, we stopped at approximately 28 meters and shot our pictures.
