28-Feb-2015 -- Today it's our weekend and nothing to do in this morning, so I decide to visit this confluence 26N 49E and a folk bazaar nearby.

At 8:00 am I moved from al-Dammām along the al-Riyāḍ highway for about 140 km, then I turned right to Umm al-`Arād village, then from this village I turned right toward east to that point about 9 km away. I arrived there almost at noon. I found it in an endless dessert with some nomads' camels around. I stayed there for half an hour to get some photo shots.
