14-Jan-2000 -- After visiting 37N 97W, I coded the 38N 98W as a waypoint
into the GPS to use as a countdown. Armed with a local map showing the
streets around the confluence from Street Atlas 7.0, I headed
This is the simplest confluence I've visited. The eastbound road was
smooth, packed and sandy, and led me to within 40 yards of what appears
to be a wheat field, small sprouts of green growing in non-furrowed,
which I assume to be winter wheat. No fence, either. Going north from
the car I attempted to tread lightly the 60 or so steps to arrive.
Although the sun was out and not too cool (about 45°F), the 25+ mph
breeze made me glad it was a short excursion.
I took the required pictures and headed back to the protection from
the wind in the car. The two pictures north, barely show the traffic on
US-50, about a mile away. These pictures seem to show what I think most
people visulize when you say, "Kansas."
