#1: The confluence point is 0.25 miles away - in this field

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

15-May-2015 -- It was raining when I drove past this confluence point - ¼ mile away. Because of the rain, plus the fact that this appeared to be a rather boring point - in the middle of a growing crop (with the farmhouse nearby), I decided to count this as an ‘incomplete’.

The previous visitors noted the impressive size of Oregon’s Malheur County - which contains no fewer than four Degree Confluence Points. Two of the other three - 42N 118W and 43N 118W - I visited two days ago. The remaining point - 44N 118W - will have to wait for some future road trip. From what I can tell, only one other county in the contiguous U.S. - California’s Inyo County - contains four degree confluence points. (California’s San Bernardino County is even larger than both Malheur and Inyo Counties, but it contains ‘only’ three degree confluence points.)
