(visited by Ross Finlayson)

16-May-2018 -- From 39N 85W, I drove westward through the scenic farmland of southern Indiana, encountering frequent patches of rain. Like the previous visitor - Joseph Kerski in April 2012 - I was visiting this area during the Spring, and was having to deal with wet weather. Like Joseph, I noticed the ominous road signs warning about flooding - but fortunately the rain (from thunderstorms) was infrequent enough to not cause a problem. After sheltering from the rain in a Starbucks in the nearby small town of Seymour, I took advantage of a short break in the weather to make a quick visit to this point.

Like Joseph, I parked at a turnoff (off a narrow country road) at 39.00460°N 85.99860°W, 0.3 miles NNE of the point. I hiked through a fallow farm field (filled with pretty wildflowers), then across a tree-lined ditch. Fortunately, unlike Joseph, I found that the ditch was dry (though still a bit slippery). Then, past an electric fence into a small, grassy field, surrounded by trees. The point lay in the middle of the field.
