#1: The standard shot of this confluence

(visited by Mike Zimmer)

27-Feb-2005 -- I stumbled upon the DCP while starting my geocache hobby. I discovered that 39N 77W is not a terrible drive from my house. According to my GPS, I crossed both 39N and 77W while walking around the building. I got as close as I could to the confluence and took a pic. Since it's a building, the pic is rather boring. I tried snapping a pic of my gps but I got major reflection off the screen and it didn't come out well. Any tips on snapping GPS screens? All in all, this pastime fascinates me and I plan on logging many more confluences. 39N 76W is next on my list, but weather will determine the next few weekend activites!
