  40°N 77°W (visit #6)  

#1: general Soutwest quadrant of Confluence w/HWY 194

(visited by Curtis Johnson)

10-May-2005 -- about 12:30pm I set out today from my vacation resort near 41N 76W to seek 2 of the 4 corners of my week's quadrangle. Taking a nice diagonal on mostly I-81 south, I entered the very nice countryside south of Franklintown. Arrived at Confluence off highway 194. Elevation showed 578 feet very close to previous visit info which would be up the gentle slope from my location.

The area of 100 meters of 40N 77W encompasses a good stretch of the highway. Map indicates that the confluence lies 326 feet due north of Hwy 194 and 260 feet due east of Hwy 194. I found a small piece of driveway or road available within this area. While this was at the edge of the home and yard, I could see that the edges of the yard were wooded and would contain the exact spot. I chose to make my pictures with the road as a recognizable reference. While the mapped confluence point was approx 50-60 meters North of my point, it was an easy reference within the 100 meter window of opportunity.

I later was curious of the 40 degree North line as it appeared to cross a nearby " Fish and Game road" off Hwy 194. After a brief visit there, I continued my day journey. Onward to CF Two -- 41N 77W
