09-Aug-2009 -- Cheryl and I were in Missouri for a square dance weekend at Osage Beach on Lake of the Ozarks. 38N93W is the second of three confluences visited during that extended weekend. Our first stop en route back to St. Louis on Sunday was an interesting visit to Bridal Cave near Camdenton, MO. 28N93W is approximately 20 miles west of Bridal Cave. We took State Road N north from US-54 and then west on Coffee Hollow Road a little over a mile. The confluence is in the ditch on the south side of Coffee Hollow Road (photos #1 and #2 to the west and east). I stopped on the westbound side of the well maintained gravel road to take the requisite photos. Photo #3 shows the base of the ridge to the north of the road and photo #4 shows the grassy valley floor just south of the confluence. I was only a few feet from the edge of the road when I recorded all zeros in photo #5. It was around noon on Sunday and several of the folks returning home from one of the two churches we saw signs for west of this location stopped to see if we were OK. Rather than make a difficult U-turn right there, we continued west on Coffee Hollow Road and enjoyed a scenic drive through rural Missouri back to State Road N to continue our journey back to St. Louis.
