(visited by the mapsurfer)

16-Aug-2000 -- I was in Laramie for the Rocky Mountain 1000 day orienteering meet, had some free time after my run so I went crusin' for confluences.

Had no preparation and no decent map, just set a waypoint and managed to get within 50 meters on roads. Unfortunately, there was no hiking or adventurious travels to get to this one, just blast up the interstate and follow the town grid thru farmland. The pictures are not representative of the terrain on the way to or near the confluence; most of that is open, dry prairie rangeland with rolling hills (see 42N 106W for what this part of WY is like).

No fence, no signs, and no sign of the landowner, so I avoided the corn and damaging any cultivated crops and grabbed a couple of pics.
