#1: Looking east from "the spot"

(visited by Rob Ekl and Donna Perysian)

02-Sep-2000 -- "S**t Jumping Everywhere"

After passing the swampy terrain and driving down two gravel roads, hilly fields were all we saw. 511 feet south of our 'parking spot' we hiked through one of many bean fields of Southern Illinois. The breeding ground for numerous flying insect species encouraged us to make our visit short, but sweet.

The open field was a perfect spot to appreciate the removal of SA, which allowed us to get a consistent reading of the exact latitude and longitude coordinates. You'll find this confluence just west of West City, IL, 5 miles from Interstate 57, exit 71.
