In a weedy field near a residential area, northeast of Peoria, near Spring Bay.



Plans for this expedition were short and typical: drive there with camera, GPS, and flag, and see what it looks like. Satellite and Bird's Eye views weren't overly revealing; it looked like this could be a simple grassy field, but it could also have been an untilled and weedy crop field when the images were captured, leaving me to find crops ready for harvest when I got there. I just had to go there and find out.


After getting a mile away from home and going back for the forgotten camera, I headed up the Illinois River Trail towards the town of Spring Bay. I turned into a somewhat remote subdivision, where at the end lay the field with the hashpoint. I arrived and was pleased to find it was, in fact, not a crop field, but an unkempt lot with overgrown weeds and such. I walked out there with the GPS and camera, and managed to find the spot without trouble. That's all there was to it, I took some photos and heading out back home.
