20-Apr-2023 -- Cheyenne County, where this confluence is located, is in Central Time, while Nebraska to the north, Colorado to the west, and Sherman County (Kansas) to the south are all in Mountain Time, an hour behind. I arrived at 1:30pm CDT after leaving Fort Collins, Colorado at 9:20am MDT, parking here in my rented Ford Edge after finding the gate to the access trail off of County Road DD closed. It was sunny and 50°F with strong winds out of the NW.
I took me about 30 minutes to skirt the western edge of the plowed fields, around the irrigation circle, under a final unmarked barbed wire fence through to a grazed hillside where the confluence lies on a southwest-facing rise. The cattle were on the other side of the barbed wire until my final five-minute approach. They were quite aware of me, but unlike the cattle at 37N 104W they seemed wary and even spooked at times, and certainly uninterested in approaching me, to my relief.
I spent less than five minutes at the confluence and then headed back, taking a shortcut through the unplanted irrigation circle along the dividing line between last year's chopped corn stalks on one side and fallow ground on the other. There seemed to some agricultural activity starting up off to the west and close, as I saw three or four pickup trucks arrive and depart during my hike in and back. I couldn't make out any people. I arrived back at the car at 2:30 CDT (an hour later) happy to have bagged this confluence and ready to drive southeast to my next confluence goal, 39N 101W.
