15-May-2000 -- This confluence is located in the
east ditch of a Rawlins County Kansas road. The area is a gently
rolling mixture of pasture and cropland (mainly wheat). Latitude 40N is
considered the Kansas-Nebraska state line, but due to surveying errors
it varies up to several hundred feet away. At this point, 40N is
approximately 500 feet south of the section line road which runs down
the state line.
