#1: Confluence 1

(visited by Jaime Salido and Juan Jose Morales)

28-May-2006 -- We waited until someone else’s plan expired, this happened on May 26th 2006.
On Sunday 28th J JMorales and Jaime Salido accomplished their second degree confluence.

This confluence is located on the sierra so we drove for an hour and a half by paved road and another hour on an unpaved road, we left the car on a lonely ranchhouse that was luckily roadside were the gps said that the confluence was 1.78 km away as there are not towns or villages for miles around.
We started hiking, it took us a two hour walk, we crossed a 448 feet high hill then we reached a little valley, the confluence was there. We took several pictured, celebrated and rested for a while and headed back home.
