(visited by Tom Arneson)

21-Jun-2009 -- I visited this Confluence on the confluence of Summer Solstice and Father's Day on a sweep through southeastern Minnesota hunting for GeoDash Points and GeoVexilla (see: www.gpsgames.org ). The day was cloudy with intermittent rain. The rain is welcome as the spring was rather dry. I visited a Dashpoint and two GeoVexilla before coming to this confluence. The Confluence is in a corn field about 70m south of County Road 115. A drainage swale runs northerly, just east of the DC.

  • Confluence: N44W92 reached
  • Latitude: 44.0000, Longitude: -92.0000
  • Date Time: 21 Jun 2009 15:26:29
  • Distance to DP: 68m, Elevation: 342m
  • Index in track record: 1706
  • 288 road km from home
  • 6km NE from St Charles
  • Winona County, Minnesota

After visiting the DC, I scored one more GeoVexilla and then drove up the Mississippi River to retrieve the ladies from Treasure Island Casino at Prairie Island, MN. We stopped in Hastings for dinner before heading home.

My total trip was 572.2 km and took 9.9 hours, including the stop for dinner.
