(visited by Bruce Wilson)

20-Oct-2000 -- I was on a Quest: to visit all confluences around my home in Brookings South Dakota. This is my second visit. Unfortunately, I got there a little late, having stopped earlier to photograph some corn harvesting. I had visited (or tried to visit) the confluence during the summer, but the corn was so thick I couldn't get within 250 feet of the confluence. I didn't even report the visit.

But this time, I arrived a day after the harvest. The corn stalks were all cut low, the field looked a real mess, covered still with the stalks and husks leftover. The field hadn't been gleaned yet (done by putting up electric wire on the perimeter and letting cows in), so there were still many corn cobs on the ground.

From the photographs you'll see I arrived just after sunset after a 10 minute walk from the car (it was only 0.4 miles, but corn husks are quite slippery and made the going slow).
