  41°N 90°W (visit #3)  

#1: North: slightly undulated field

(visited by Florian Schindler)

16-Jan-2011 -- I am astonished that I am the third visitor of this point. In fact, some of the US Confluence Points have been visited only once and some visits are more then 10 years old. I think my fellow friends in the US it is time to revisit the Confluence Points!

My drive from 41°N 089°W was uneventful and smooth. On the final approach I drove on unpaved road and parked my car 410 meters due south of the point at a grove. There was only a few centimeters snow on the field so I did not need to wear my boots.

With a brisk speed I walked on the field, which had been a corn field in summer and reached the point without problems.
Zeroing out the GPS receiver was quickly done and my photos contribute the view of the landscape in winter.
I returned home to my hotel and had a nice Sunday pleasure trip!
