02-Mar-2001 -- Visting this confluence was part of a day-trip to
place the first
ever geocache in the state of Wyoming.
The trip from Granger to Fontenelle reminded us of how big
and empty parts of Wyoming are. We drove the 50 miles on
US 30, State 240, US 189, and State 372 without seeing
many other vehicles.
Street Atlas did a good job until the last, when the road
I'd planned on following wasn't there but a faint track on
the edge of a pipeline was. Mary watched the GPS receiver
while I guided the truck from rut to rut. When we were at
N42 latitude, we stopped and then followed the line of
latitude west until we got to the right longitude. This
was Columbus's plan to find his way to the Indies. Worked
better for us than it did for him.
