#1: Looking to the West

(visited by Jonathan Beck and Dave Carter)

04-Aug-2005 -- Dave and I were visiting my family in nearby Culbertson, MT, when my grandfather suggested we go visit the new Lewis and Clark confluence center in ND. This museum is really excellent, and is found at the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers, however, it's also located very near a lat/long confluence as well.

I had read the previous visitor's description of the area, and knew that we could make a quick visit to this confluence on our way to the museum and also to nearby Fort Union.

The confluence itself is located in a field roughly 200 yards off of the highway, very easy to reach. This year, it was planted with barley, hopefully to be used to make beer. We took a couple of shots in each direction, and headed on our merry way.
