#1: Confluence point as seen from the road

(visited by Kenneth Girodias)

26-Sep-2003 -- I decided to take off work this afternoon and drive down to 35-80. Driving on 74, I noticed that there were a lot of small roads that turned off toward the confluence. Not having a road map with me, I picked the road that was closest to the confluence. That road eventually lead me back to 74. The second road I picked ended in a church parking lot. At this point, I stopped the car and looked at the map on my GPS. After getting my bearings, I found highway 1703. I headed north on 1703, then turned left on 1711. The confluence is in a field just south of 1711. I drove past a little ways and then turned around so I could park on the confluence side of the road. The first thing I noticed was that the field seemed a lot smaller than it appeared in the pictures taken by the previous visitors. I took some pictures toward the confluence point, then I carefully slipped through the barbed wire fence and headed toward the confluence which was about 150 yards away. Fortunately there were no horses in the field, so I was able to quickly get to the confluence point. I went through my standard routine, get all zeros on the GPS, and then take pictures in the appoximate directions of north, south, east, and west. After getting my pictures, I got back to my car and started my long drive home. Not much has changed at this confluence in the previous two years as you can see from the pictures.
