#1: looking east from the confluence

(visited by Rick Smeltzer)

22-Jul-2000 -- This confluence, 40 north 85 west is located in east central Indiana near the town of Williamsburg. I located the landowner and received permission to photograph the confluence. Duane and Sara Davis operate a purebred Yorkshire hog farrowing facility in Wayne County. They also farm 600 acres in Wayne and Randolph Counties with corn and soybeans. The confluence is located in a lush alfalfa field just south of their farrowing barn. The confluence is also located about eight miles from Hoosier Hill, Indiana's highest point - a whopping 1257 feet.

Photograph two is looking northeast toward the farrowing operation. Photographs one and three are looking east and west respectively from the confluence. The trailer and pipe in picture 3 are part of the manure irrigation system - no wonder the alfalfa looks so good. Picture 4 is the obligatory GPS receiver among the alfalfa. Picture 5 is of Indiana's high point.
